According to ADB website, the Department of Climate Change in National Development and Reform Commission (CC-NDRC) of the PRC is the apex government agency in the PRC to plan and manage climate change related activities. It recognizes the need to have a clear pathway to achieve the 2020 low-carbon goal to address climate change and promote sustainable development. The proposed TA will provide critical strategic analysis that is needed in achieving this goal. It will fill in the crucial gaps of analytical and strategic work of (i) comprehensively examining the progress so far towards the 2020 low-carbon goal, (ii) appropriateness of policies, actions and programs in achieving the goal; and (iii) provide a cost competitive but effective plan and implementation strategies to overcome barriers in achieving the goal. The study outputs may directly contribute to the government's policy making and carbon emission control programs during the 13th plan and beyond.

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