Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

The final review mission was fielded on 11 June 2015. Progress made since the interim review mission with regards to the activities and deliverables under the TA outputs were: (i) conduct of second provincial consultation mission, (ii) submission of the draft final report and draft knowledge product, and (iii) conduct of overseas study tour.

During the final review of the TA, it was agreed that it is important to address the legal, institutional and other issues to ensure proper design and operation and maintenance of the facilities. Sustainable financing and O&M of waste treatment facilities are critical issues to be addressed. Based on the review of international experience, the consultant team should propose innovative solutions that are applicable to the PRC situation. Detailed steps should be recommended as part of a road map to sustainable financing and management of rural sewage and solid waste treatment and disposal facilities. Also important is to propose approaches and outline steps that should be followed to choose the right technologies based on the local conditions to ensure financial viability and environmental safety and ensuring that regional differences are considered to ensure that technologies are tuned to local conditions.
