Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The project aims at demonstrating sustainable livestock value chains that deliver quality food in 11 project counties in Henan Province. The project will help (i) the Henan Provincial Government (HPG) improve livestock product safety monitoring and inspection system; and (ii) 11 medium and large private livestock production and/or processing enterprises, project participating enterprises (PPEs), improve food safety control, and implement environmentally-sustainable livestock production and processing. Henan is the province suitable for the demonstration given its strategic importance in food security and agriculture in the PRC.

The project aims to help HPG and PPEs demonstrate food safety improvement and environmentally sustainable medium- and large-sized livestock production.

The project is consistent with the PRC's Twelfth Five-Year Plan (2011 2015), which pursues the long-term goal of building a harmonious and moderately prosperous society through livelihood improvement, and regionally balanced and environmentally sustainable growth. It is also consistent with the third plenum of the 18th Communist Party of China Central Committee, which determines the direction of Thirteenth Five-Year Plan, affirmed the government's renewed commitment to food safety system improvement and sustainable environmental and natural resources management. The project is also in line with ADB's country partnership strategy, 2011 2015 for the PRC in supporting the government's overarching strategic goal by focusing on inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth. Project loan is proposed as financing modality of the project.
