Project Description
This proposed TA also effectively builds on a past ADB-financed TA which supported the PRC in developing recommendations for a national framework for soil pollution and contaminated land management. Lessons from this TA can potentially be replicated in other priority remediation sites not only in the PRC but also in other developing member countries facing similar challenges. The TA project will have three outputs: (i) technical guidelines, operational standards, and recommendations for cost-effective technologies and contaminated farmland remediation projects; (ii) strategies for sustainable financing for remediation activities; and (iii) knowledge of key stakeholders on contaminated farmland remediation. IMPACT Quality of arable land for rice farming in Hunan Province improved. CONSULTING SERVICES A consulting firm will be engaged in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) using the simplified technical proposal and quality- and cost-based selection method, with a quality cost ratio of 90:10 due to the high technical complexity of the consulting assignment.
