|Description||The proposed project, which is being prepared with support from this PPTA, aims to promote balanced and environmentally sustainable urbanization; narrow the rural-urban gap; and improve living conditions by supporting the development of five key townships in central Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China (PRC).

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||This project will build on ADB's Liaoning small cities and towns project and is intended to demonstrate clustered urban agglomeration and integrated rural-urban development while incorporating environmental and social considerations in planning and development. The proposed project reflects two early lessons from the ongoing project. First, a project rather than a sector approach will be taken in recognition of constraints imposed by domestic procedures. Second, the selection of participating towns will be more tightly driven by clustering considerations. Further lessons will be identified and incorporated during implementation of the project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA).|
