  Join Partnerships for International Strategies in Asia (PISA) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for a lunchtime briefing on the new ADB Accountability Mechanism introduced this year.


The ADB introduced in 2012 a new Accountability Mechanism which provides an independentforum where people affected by Asian Development Bank (ADB)-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and also report alleged violations of ADB’s operational policies and procedures. The Accountability Mechanism has both a problem solving function, undertaken by the Office of the Special Project Facilitator (OSPF), and a compliance review function undertaken by the Compliance Review Panel (CRP).
