Project Description

The transaction TA facility will help prepare the program of interrelated projects and TA under the Yangtze River Economic Belt (YREB) strategic framework. The TA facility is suitable to ensure a consistent approach to the YREB strategic framework by addressing cross-sectoral themes, developing local capacity for improved project implementation, enhancing project readiness, and strengthening the overall coordination and cooperation for sustainable green development and environmental protection of the Yangtze River.
