A Guidebook on the Compliance Review Function of ADB’s Accountability Mechanism – For ADB Management and Staff

Institutional Document | May 2018

This guidebook serves to explain in detail and improve the understanding of ADB Management and staff of the compliance review function of ADB’s accountability mechanism.

A Guidebook on the Compliance Review Function of ADB’s Accountability Mechanism was developed to explain in detail and improve one’s understanding of the compliance review function of ADB’s Accountability Mechanism.

This document is one among a series of four guidebooks prepared particularly for (i) ADB Management and staff, (ii) government, (iii) affected people and their representative or partner nongovernment organizations (NGOs) or civil society organizations (CSOs), and (iv) private sector borrowers. This series of guidebooks aims to aid comprehension of the compliance review and its processes, particularly to address the stakeholders’ need to understand their roles in its proceedings.

With this guidebook, it is hoped that ADB Management and staff will be even better equipped to take on the decisive role of responding to the needs of people who may be unduly and adversely affected or potentially harmed by ADB-assisted projects that fail to meet the rigorous standards of ADB’s policies.

Note: This guidebook serves only to inform on the compliance review function of the ADB’s Accountability Mechanism Policy 2012. Should discrepancies arise between this guidebook and the Accountability Mechanism Policy, the policy and its related operations manual section (Operations Manual L.1) will prevail.
