In its long-term strategic framework 2008?2020 (Strategy 2020) , ADB has identified energy as a core operational sector and achieving environmental sustainability as a priority. ADB has introduced new initiatives (e.g. CEFPF) to augment its assistance to developing member countries for acquiring low-carbon technologies and implementing energy efficiency projects. ADB?s country partnership strategy for the PRC has also emphasized balanced and sustainable growth with more efficient uses of resources and more stringent protection of the environment. One of the key priorities of the 11th Five Year Plan (FYP) of the PRC is to improve energy efficiency by 20%, which is a flagship program of the PRC to address climate change and environmental challenges due to rapid economic growth. The TA has a close fit with both ADB's and PRC's priorities.
