According to ADB Technical Assistance Report, the TA is the first initiative on VOC pollution control in the PRC. Based on the PRC’s needs regarding pollution control, and building on past ADB initiatives, the TA will help develop a road map for improving the control of VOC emissions from industrial sources in the PRC, including requirements for a legislative framework, institutional arrangements, and regulations. In addition, the TA will help prepare an outline management plan for the petrochemical industry for the control and prevention of VOC emissions.
The impact will be improved air quality through effective VOC emission control in the PRC. Comprehensive VOC control measures will be implemented in key industries by 2017. The outcome will be improved management of VOC emissions through introducing a new policy and regulatory framework in the PRC.

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
