The ADB is a regional, multilateral development bank that is owned by 67 member countries, 48 from Asia and 19 from outside of Asia. The ADB’s mission is to alleviate poverty in Asia and the Pacific through loans, technical assistance, grants, guarantees (insurance) and investments intended to create economic growth in its developing member countries.
The ADB’s current Accountability Mechanism went into effect on May 24, 2012. The Mechanism consists of two functions:
Problem Solving: in which the Special Project Facilitator (SPF) attempts to facilitate an agreement between the parties, and
Compliance Review: in which the Compliance Review Panel (CRP) conducts an investigation into the ADB’s compliance with its policies and procedures.
All complaints go to the Complaints Receiving Officer (CRO). The CRO then forwards them to either the SPF or the CRP, depending on which function you request.
