Description

The Office of the Special Project Facilitator (OSPF) is responsible for the Consultation Phase of the ADB Accountability Mechanism. The core function of OSPF is to facilitate solutions to problems caused by ADB-assisted projects, using consensus-based methods, seeking agreement among all parties, and identifying ways to resolve problems. In 2010, OSPF concluded the consultation process for five complaints, processed seven new complaints, and worked jointly with the Office of the Compliance Review Panel to inform stakeholders about the Accountability Mechanism through outreach sessions in several countries as well as at ADB headquarters. OSPF produced several publications in 2010 to disseminate information about the complaint process, to document success stories, and to promote the use of effective grievance redress mechanisms.
