The ADB introduced in 2012 a new Accountability Mechanism which provides an independent forum 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). As part of the ADB’s efforts to update its development partners and policy makers on the new Accountability Mechanism, Mr. Rusdian Lubis and Mr. Geoffrey will conduct a briefing session for members of The George Washington University community.
