The project supported the People's Republic of China's (PRC) and the Hunan Provincial Government's (HnPG) policies and plans for flood protection investments. Since 2000, the Ministry of Water Resources had been changing its policy and strategy from a flood-control approach to a river basin-based integrated flood management approach. The policy shift was economically and environmentally sustainable and aimed to be socially inclusive. The project supported the implementation of an area and time slice of Hunan's integrated flood-control program under the Hunan Provincial 11th and 12th Five-Year Planx (2006-2010, 2011-2015), focusing on a comprehensive framework for flood control, management, and forecasting in the four mountainous river basins-Lishui, Xiangjiang, Yuanjiang, and Zishui. Flood protection works was constructed for up to 35 subprojects. Nonstructural measures were developed to strengthen hydrological monitoring, improve flood forecasting, and enhance flood warning systems. An advisory technical assistance (TA) was provided to support sustainable flood management by assisting the Provincial Water Resources Department (PWRD) to plan and assess nonstructural aspects of flood management and strengthen capacity in plan implementation.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
