|Description||This S-RDTA is expected to be a pilot program for managing and organizing outreach on AM. The S-RDTA will facilitate the dissemination of information about the AM to APs, CBOs, and NGOs to enable them to understand the processes and procedures to lodge a complaint with the SPF and/or to request the CRP to review ADB's compliance with its operational policies and procedures.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||It is expected that greater awareness as to the rights to complain about ADB projects or to hold ADB accountable for compliance will contribute to increase ADB staff awareness level on the AM and the rights of APs. This, in turn, may contribute to better project quality; improved development effectiveness and enhanced development results.|
|Impact||Greater awareness on the AP's right to complain about ADB projects or to hold ADB accountable for compliance with its own policies will contribute to improved development effectiveness and better project quality. This, in turn, may contribute to enhanced development results.|
|Description of Outcome||OCRP and OSPF are better able to conduct more systematic outreach; greater number of APs understand that they must first exhaust the avenues for grievance in ADB operations department and the AM procedures; and APs, CSOs and NGOs become aware of and are better informed about the AM|
