The proposed Project aims at adopting an integrated approach to infrastructure construction and ecosystem rehabilitation. The Government proposal for ADB financing consists of five areas: (i) road construction, (ii) water supply and drainage, (iii) centralized heating, (iv) ecological environmental improvement, and (v) garbage treatment. The Project focuses on inclusive economic development and environmental sustainability by providing better infrastructure and municipal services in XUAR following other urban development projects. It also brings possible challenges for counterpart funding and capacity building. The Project covers six counties and towns in the remote Altay Prefecture, namely Buerjin County, Fuhai County, Habahe County, Fuyun County, Qinghe County, and Jimunai County. Existing infrastructure and services cannot meet increasing urban demands in these areas. Utilities either do not exist or are old, fragile, and inadequate resulting in poor standards and frequent service failure.
