Project Description

The TA contributes to Asian Development Bank's (ADB) strategic priorities in the draft PRC's Country Partnership Strategy, 2016 2015, which includes supporting more innovation in eco-compensation as a tool for environmental management in the PRC. It effectively builds on ADB's long-term cooperation with PRC on the eco-compensation agenda. In addition to publications and regional knowledge sharing events, ADB has also been instrumental in facilitating policy and legal reform in the PRC related to eco-compensation through TAs supporting development of national and provincial policy and legislative framework. On the project level, ADB is already investing in a pilot program to operationalize some eco-compensation concepts through projects such as the Guiyang Integrated Water Resources Management Project (Loan No. 2573-PRC), the Jiangsu Yancheng Wetlands Protection Project (Loan No. 2838-PRC), and the Anhui Chao Lake Environmental Rehabilitation Project (Loan No. 2941-PRC). In July 2014, ADB-NDRC joint knowledge hub on green growth and eco-compensation was launched in Beijing. This proposed TA effectively builds on ADB's past collaboration with PRC and continues to explore an additional innovative and practical aspect of the eco-compensation agenda in the PRC.
