According to the bank document, the proposed small-scale knowledge and support TA will provide policy advice to the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE), the National People's Congress (NPC), and the State Council of the People's Republic of China (PRC) through the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development to support the preparation of a legislative framework in line with the preparation of the draft Yangtze River Protection Law (YRPL).
MEE, as the leading ministry responsible for the protection of the Yangtze River, will consult with local and international experts in the preparation of the draft YRPL. MEE will prepare the initial version of the draft YRPL by 30 June 2019 for initial submission to NPC, which will review and consolidate submissions received. The revised version will be used as the basis for wider consultation with key ministries and other stakeholders. It is envisaged that the final version of the draft YRPL will be prepared by 31 December 2019, which will then be subject to further consultation and NPC's legislative approval processes and national procedures.

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
