According to ADB website, given a rapidly changing growth dynamics and the pressing need to integrate sustainable development planning, ADB and the Government have agreed to conduct a Country Water Assessment (CWA) for the PRC. The proposed technical assistance (TA) for the CWA will be used to improve policies and strategies in the water sector, particularly to improve national water security and to deal with water scarcity. The PRC CWA will also support the preparation of the 13th FYP on water resources management, and will ensure that ADB's strategy and programs respond to water security challenges in the PRC and are consistent with PRC's water policy directions.
According to bank documents, the safeguard categorization is not applicable.

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
