Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The project will develop a modern and efficient multimodal logistics system in Chongqing. The outputs of the project will be (i) the Chongqing transportation logistics park, (ii) the Nanpeng logistics park, (iii) the Yangtze River inland waterway roll-on roll-off (Ro-Ro) operations, (iv) a logistics information system, and (v) institutional capacity building.

The proposed project is the third urban development project in Chongqing. Lessons from past and ongoing projects were incorporated in the project design, such as devolving more responsibilities to the implementing agency while strengthening its project management and financial management capacity. The proposed project will have demonstration features, namely integrated logistics parks, logistics information system, and inland waterway Ro-Ro operations. These features are all relatively new for logistics projects in the PRC, and their successful introduction through this project will offer opportunities for replication and scaling up. Integrated logistics functions and services in the new logistics parks will reduce wasteful freight movements. Logistics information services will enable logistics service providers, such as freight forwarding companies, to increase efficiency and reduce costs through better tracking and control over the supply chain. Ro-Ro operations will reduce the time and costs of transshipments, incentivizing freight movement on inland waterways.

The project is consistent with the plans of the Government of the PRC to develop the logistics sector and is in line with the Thirteenth Five-Year Plan. The project is also closely aligned with the government's priorities to develop the Yangtze River Economic Belt and the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative. The project's focus on logistics development is in line with the Sustainable Transport Initiative of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), which highlights logistics improvements as an important opportunity for sustainable transport operations. The project also draws on the recommendations of the previous ADB study on logistics development in the PRC.

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.

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:
