According to the Bank’s website, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will analyze measures to lower contribution to and minimize the impact of climate change in Ningxia, People’s Republic of China (PRC) using science and technology. The TA was requested by the Government of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region (NHAR). The NHAR is one of the regions in the PRC with highest carbon dioxide (CO2) intensity per gross domestic product because of the predominance of the coal and chemical industries. It is also prone to the vagaries of climate change impacts because of increased drought and constrained water supply from the Yellow River, affecting agriculture activities. This TA will study appropriate scientific methods and processes to measure and strengthen climate responsiveness in the following three primary economic sectors in Ningxia: agriculture, energy, and heavy industries.

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.
