According to the Bank’s website, the proposed Technical Assistance Project is designed to finance the development of an Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) Framework and related capacity building. By developing the ESG framework and building the requisite capacity across Government, the proposed project is expected to have a positive impact on Mauritius's ongoing efforts to attract green investments in Mauritius and the rest of Africa. This will contribute to green growth, job creation and attainment of SDGs. It will, furthermore, complement existing Bank-funded projects in Mauritius, particularly the ongoing Economic Competitiveness and Resilience Support Program. These complementary interventions will achieve significant development outcomes and contribute to the attainment of Mauritius's medium-term development goals. These outputs are expected to result in the following outcome: (i) 5 projects incorporating ESG principles in line with the new framework; (ii) Governance arrangements for ESG implementation rolled out. The project is structured around two mutually reinforcing and complementary components, namely: (1) Development on an ESG Framework and (2) Capacity building for project management.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or email@example.com.
