Project Description

According to ADB website, the policy advisory technical assistance will study the institutionalization of Urban-Rural Environmental Master Planning (UREMP) in the PRC. UREMP will address key environmental issues and enable an environmentally sustainable model for the PRC's future urban development. UREMP is conceptualized as a required, legally binding instrument prior to and providing input for the development of land-use plans and urban master plans. UREMP will include urban-rural ecosystems analysis and landscape planning, and be prepared using domestic and international state-of-the-art methods. The Ministry of Environmental Protection of the PRC, the executing agency of the TA, has initiated a preliminary version of a management and technical support document for UREMP and this TA will build on and improve it into a technical and policy instrument that will suitably position UREMP within the PRC''s environmental and planning system.
