Even good projects engender complaints. ADB's Accountability Mechanism provides an independent forum through which people claiming to be adversely affected by ADBassisted projects can raise issues with ADB and request the review of a project's compliance with ADB's operational policies and procedures. The Accountability Mechanism consists of two separate but related functions, a consultation phase and a compliance review phase. The experience with the Chashma Right Bank Irrigation Project (Stage III) in Pakistan generated valuable advice on the conduct of compliance review.
