Sovereign (Public) Project | 52059-001 Status: Active

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support investment projects proposed for Asian Development Bank (ADB) financing requiring environmental and social safeguards assessments and to manage the impacts and risks related to involuntary resettlement (IR), environment, and indigenous peoples (IP) at an early stage of project preparation. During project implementation, the executing agencies oversee the application of the resettlement plan (RP), the environmental management plan (EMP), and indigenous peoples plan (IP) and oversee fulfilling other requirements as per ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (2009).

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
