Some gender elements
The technical assistance (TA) subproject supports the cluster TA 0048-PRC: Strengthening Capacity, Institutions, and Policies for Enabling High-Quality, Green Development in the Yellow River Ecological Corridor (YREC) of the Asian Development Bank. The YREC program is a multisector programmatic approach that supports the goals of the People's Republic of China's Yellow River Basin (YRB) Ecological Protection and High-quality Development Program, 2021-2035, to prioritize ecological protection and promote high-quality green development in the YRB. The TA cluster has the following outcome: high-quality, green development opportunities in the YRB increased. The TA cluster comprises a series of subprojects, each focused on different aspects of river basin management, to help achieve the aims of the YREC program. The TA cluster was approved on 28 October 2020. So far, thirteen subprojects have been approved under the TA cluster of which one has been completed and financially closed and twelve are under implementation, and three subprojects will be approved within 2023. The overall TA cluster amount is $4.782 million, of which $4.632 million is financed on a grant basis from the Technical Assistance Special Fund (TASF-other sources) of ADB and $.15 million from the Climate Change Fund.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
The impact of the TA subproject is aligned with the overall impact of the TA cluster: resilient ecological protection and security in the YRB achieved. The TA cluster subproject will have the following outcome: water efficiency improved through enabling policies, standards, and demonstrative cases.
