Project Description

According to the bank document, the proposed program will be the first Sector Development Program (SDP) for the water sector in the People's Republic of China (PRC). It will combine institutional and policy interventions with prioritized infrastructure investments. The institutional and policy actions will focus on:

(i) strengthening integration and cross-agency coordination in water sector planning, as well as management and service delivery;

(ii) improving governance and incentivizing service delivery performance;

(iii) initiating gradual diversification of water sources away from sole dependence on groundwater; and

(iv) building an environment conducive to sustainable financing, including a road map for private sector participation.

The infrastructure investments will complement the policy agenda to:

(i) improve access to water services (water supply, drainage, and wastewater) for underserved residents; and

(ii) demonstrate commitments to (a) transition away from sole reliance on groundwater, (b) introduce innovative smart water approaches, and (c) integrate urban-rural services.

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
