According to the bank document, the project is the third in a multiyear, multisector Asian Development Bank (ADB) support program for air quality improvement in the greater Beijing Tianjin Hebei (BTH) region.
The first loan, approved in 2015, focused on reforming policy and strengthening regulatory capacity in Hebei province.
The second loan, approved in 2016, targeted better access to finance, especially for small and medium sized-enterprises, to scale up investments in pollution-reduction projects in the region.
This third project will complement the previous projects and will directly help remove barriers to deploying high technologies that could reduce air pollution from industries, urban infrastructure, and agriculture.

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.
