People’s Republic of China: Guangxi Wuzhou Urban Development Project
The Government of the PRC and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) agreed to implement a project in Wuzhou City, a city in the mountainous areas of the less developed western part of the PRC. The project would use an approach to shift geohazard management from disaster rehabilitation to disaster avoidance and prevention, and incorporate a self-financing mechanism into geohazard management through holistic urban planning and integrated public investment. The project had three major components: (i) Pingminchong valley geohazard resettlement and prevention; (ii) Hongling road network and related infrastructure; and (iii) capacity development and institutional building.
