Project Description

According to the bank document, the project aims to support China Water Affairs Group Ltd. (CWA) to implement operations under an integrated urban water management approach. The approach involves the coordinated development and operation of multiple components of the urban water value chain.

The project will target second- and third-tier cities in the People's Republic of China (PRC) where the development of urban water infrastructure has lagged. Communities in subproject locations are expected to benefit from improved access to water and wastewater services, while local governments are expected to benefit from lower costs for developing and operating infrastructure and from more efficient concession management.

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
