The TA will assist in mainstreaming environmental considerations into the PRC's policies and investment programs, and in strengthening the legal, regulatory, and enforcement capacities of government agencies. The TA is in line with ADB's core area of operations as expressed in its long-term strategic framework 2008 2020 (Strategy 2020)3 and the country partnership strategy (2008 2010).4 The proposed TA supports the implementation of the Government's 11th Five-Year Plan (FYP) (2006 2010), which emphasizes the need to build a society that uses resources efficiently and is environment-friendly.
The TA will also contribute to the preparation of the 12th FYP (2011 2015), which is expected to introduce new approaches for environmental protection in the PRC.
