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 TA will (i) assess the technical feasibility of the project; (ii) conduct due diligence on the economic and financial feasibility of the project; (iii) review safeguard requirements; (iv) conduct social survey and consultations; (v) develop capacity of the XCG for project management; and (vi) prepare project documents, including feasibility study reports (FSR), safeguard documents, and ADB's draft report and recommendations of the President (RRP).

The Government of the People's Republic of China (PRC) requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to provide lending support to demonstrate integrated and climate-resilient flood and environmental management with harmonized with realistic urban planning, in Kongmu River watershed in Xinyu City that is a manageable size watershed for project level intervention. The proposed project is included in ADB's country operations business plan, 2015 2017 and the ensuing loan in ADB's 2017 lending pipeline for the PRC. Since the executing agency, Xinyu city government (XCG) is not familiar with ADB's project preparation requirements, it is necessary to provide a project preparatory technical assistance (TA) to help the XCG prepare the project that complies with ADB's requirements and includes best international practices.

The TA will be carried out by a team of consultants. A total of 12.5 person-months of international and 32.0 person-months of national consulting services will be required. The consulting firm will be selected by (i) inviting simplified technical proposals; and (ii) using the quality- and cost-based selection method, with a quality-cost ratio of 90:10. Consultants will be hired following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).

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.

Xinyu City Government
No. 1388, Yanjiang Road, Xinyu City
Jiangxi Province, PRC

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
