    Philippines: Electricity Market and Transmission Development Project

    After the East Asian financial crisis of 1997, the Government of the Philippines began a program to restructure the power sector and make the country’s electricity reliable, accessible, affordable, and sustainable. This effort was embodied by the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA) of 2001. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the Electricity Market and Transmission Development Project in 2002 to support the government’s restructuring and privatization plans. ADB approved a $40.0 million loan to National Power Corporation that was to account for 38% of project financing.

    People’s Republic of China: Sanjiang Plain Wetlands Protection Project

    The Sanjiang Plain wetlands, located in the northeastern Heilongjiang Province, comprise one of the richest areas of globally significant biodiversity in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) but also one of the country’s most important food production regions. The area of the wetlands has been reduced by 80% from its original size since the 1950s due to multiple pressures, most notably drainage to reclaim land for farming.

    People’s Republic of China: Gansu Heihe Rural Hydropower Development Investment Program— Erlongshan Hydropower Project

    By 2006, demand for electricity had outpaced economic growth for three consecutive years in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), leading to power supply shortages throughout the country. High levels of investment in coal fueled electricity generation capacity were made from 2000 to 2006 to offset continued shortages. Coal based power generation, representing 81% of the country’s power generation at that time, intensified air pollution throughout the PRC and increased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

    People’s Republic of China: Heilongjiang Road Network Development Project

    In July 2006, the Board of Directors of Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a loan of up to $200 million from its ordinary capital resources for the improvement of 428 kilometers (km) of the 775 km Jixi–Nehe highway and 170 km of rural link roads to develop an integrated road network, including a 2.6 km bridge over the Songhua river, two 500 meter bridges, and 145 smaller bridges.

    Regional: Greater Mekong Subregion Regional Communicable Diseases Control Project

    The economic impact of cross-border transmission and the spread of emerging and epidemic infectious diseases on tourism, trade, and productivity can reach billions of US dollars. Within the framework of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) economic cooperation program, the ADB supported a grant-financed project to help three GMS countries—Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, and Viet Nam—mitigate increased risks from greater transmission of communicable diseases resulting from greater connectivity for goods and services.

    Philippines: Acquisition and Rehabilitation of the Masinloc Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant

    During the 1980s and early 1990s, the Philippines’ power sector suffered major electricity supply shortages. In response to the shortages, the National Power Corporation (i) invested substantially in costly fast-track diesel and oil-fired power plants, (ii) implemented new public sector generation projects including Masinloc, and (iii) completed 27 contracts for construction of independent power plants.

    Federated States of Micronesia: Private Sector Development Program

    The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is a small island country, spreading across the four states of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap, each with its executive and legislative bodies. FSM’s close ties with the United States of America through the Compact of Free Association and the high level of external transfers under the Compact place the country in a unique situation. The country has a disproportionally large public sector and a small productive base.
