Best practices include (i) linking and functionally integrating infrastructure to optimize development impacts, including river, wastewater, and road components; (ii) implementation of national regulations on water and wastewater tariffs (promulgated by the government and prepared with ADB assistance) established an enabling environment for private sector participation (as regulations require full cost recovery), mainly for the water supply sector in Pingxiang; and (iii) road alignment optimization through the study of alternatives to minimize and balance resettlement and environmental impacts. Pilot demonstration features include (i) urban -rural flood risk management and climate resilience partnerships; (ii) ecological river management supporting sustainable urban- rural sponge city development; and (iii) community-based environment supervision and roads safety education teams.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

Pingxiang Municipal Government
Jiangxi Pingxiang Ying Bin road No. 18 , PRC, 337000

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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
