Lessons Learned from Compliance Reviews at the Asian Development Bank (2004–2020): Visayas Base-Load Power Development Project in the Philippines

Publication | May 2022

This publication focuses on the compliance review of the Visayas Base-Load Power Development Project in the Philippines under the 2003 Accountability Mechanism Policy.

Underscored in this publication is ADB Management's critical role in guiding private sector clients toward substantial adherence to ADB's policies, which requires rigorous baseline and impact studies and informed consultation and public participation as necessary elements of project preparation. The publication is the seventh in a series of publications prepared by ADB's Office of the Compliance Review Panel (OCRP) that feature compliance reviews of eight ADB-assisted projects that were the subject of formal complaints filed with the OCRP in 2004–2020.
