According to ADB website, the proposed TA supports the PRC government's strategy for delinking the economic growth and increased greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the utilization of renewable energy. The proposed TA is also a timely response to address the urban air pollution in Northern PRC which is partly attributed to coal fired heating plants located in urban areas and supports the recently issued regulations by National Energy Administration to increase non-polluting energy sources for heat supply. ADB's PRC: Country Partnership Strategy 2011 2015 also prioritized ADB support for innovative technologies and institutional arrangements to mitigate climate change, urban environment and private sector participation in delivery of public services. The proposed TA will enhance the capacity of provincial government agencies to utilize distributed renewable energy sources for heat supply in urban areas by assessing the feasibility of geothermal energy and wind power as a potential heat source in the context of Hebei Province.

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
