Description

The Hunan Provincial Government's Integrated Flood Control Plan (IFCP) focuses on flood control, management, and forecasting in four mountainous river basins: Xiangjiang, Zishui, Yuanjiang and Lishui, and their flood prone cities. Thirty-six cities in Hunan Province will benefit from IFCP's upgrading of flood protection and management measures.

To execute the IFCP, ADB and the Hunan Provincial Government worked together on the Hunan Flood Management Sector Project (HFMSP), which initiated flood management strategies in the province. An annual management, monitoring and reporting system was built into the HFMSP and included environment and resettlement frameworks. The Hunan Water Resources Department (HWRD) took the lead in the project.

This PDA focused on the preparation and adoption of a comprehensive management framework for the HFMSP as assistance to the HWRD. The management framework is hoped to improve HFMSP's annual system and was expected to be of great use for ADB and the Hunan Provincial and Local Governments in the monitoring and evaluation of the HFMSP.

Expected Outcome

  • a project management and monitoring manual for adoption by the HFMSP and for use by ADB in its semi-annual monitoring of the project
  • a workshop for the provincial and local government and the HWRD on the application of the management and monitoring framework
  • a briefing to ADB on the needs to further develop the management system during HFMSP implementation
