Project Description

According to ADB website, ADB and the PRC have been actively exploring knowledge partnerships to expand mutual learning with other developing member countries in urban development, water security, and transport sector. In March 2010, the Urban Knowledge Hub was established with the Tongji University in Shanghai, PRC to share best practices in urban planning. A knowledge partnership, covering the water sector, with the Asia-Pacific Center for Water Security was established in 2011 jointly with Tsinghua and Peking universities; while the establishment of the Transport Knowledge Hub is currently under way. The Regional Knowledge Sharing Initiative, which was jointly established by ADB and the Ministry of Finance (MOF), was launched in August 2012 and serves as a vehicle to share development experiences between the PRC and other countries.

The impact of the proposed knowledge hub will be enhanced knowledge and practices on green growth in DMCs. The outcome of the TA will be a mechanism for knowledge sharing on green growth and eco-compensation.
