During Project Design The MRLDO will be the executing agency for the TA. A TA management office (TMO) will be established in the MRLDO's International Cooperation Division to carry out day-to-day TA operations. The director of the MRLDO's International Cooperation Division will serve as the TMO executive director and will be responsible for coordinating operational matters and technical collaboration with the consultants.
During Project Implementation

ADB will undertake intensive review and supervision by fielding missions at critical stages of TA implementation particularly inception, midterm, and final reviews; and by extending regular support from the ADB headquarters and the PRC Resident Mission. The MRLDO will ensure relevant offices and departments including the departments of agriculture, forestry, land resources, mining, and water resources; the meteorology bureau; and others at city and provincial levels participate in meetings and workshops during the inception, interim, midterm, and final stages of TA implementation.

The consultants will submit an inception report to ADB within 6 weeks of TA commencement, and an interim report 7 months after TA commencement. A draft final report will be submitted to ADB 12 months after TA commencement, and a final report at TA conclusion. The inception, interim, and draft final reports will be subject to review by ADB and the government. All reports will be written in English and translated into Chinese.

The TA results will be disseminated through project reports, TA workshops, and media releases by ADB and the MRLDO. An IDRM policy brief will be developed and disseminated in hard copy by ADB, the PRC Resident Mission, and the MRLDO; and will be posted on the ADB website. An outcome evaluation will follow ADB guidelines, and will be provided to the MRLDO.
