The Asian Development Bank is helping Jilin Province upgrade infrastructure and services in the cities of Baishan and Baicheng. The project is building roads with dedicated lanes for buses and non-motorized transport, as well as making water, sanitation, heating and solid waste management improvements. The project aims to improve the quality of life for around 786,000 residents.

|Description||The project will address urgent infrastructure needs, introduce best practices, and pilot innovative municipal services solutions to develop Baishan and Baicheng cities in Jilin Province (in the northeast region of the People's Republic of China [PRC]) as livable and resource-efficient medium-sized cities. It will make provision for (i) urban roads and municipal services in Baicheng that promote people-centered urban transport; (ii) the introduction of integrated solid waste management (ISWM) in both cities, based on the reduce, reuse, recycle (3R) principle that includes composting solutions; and (iii) improvement of water supply services in Baishan, emphasizing water conservation, water supply safety, and energy efficiency.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The PRC's National New Urbanization Plan, 2014 -2020 aims to increase the urbanization rate from the current 54% to 60% by 2020 (representing about 100 million new urban residents), and to 70% by 2030 (equal to about 300 million new urban residents). Urbanization is perceived as a means to sustain economic growth through domestic consumption, and to achieve more balanced development by directing the future urban population away from large cities. The strategy focuses on the development of medium-sized cities (in which more than one-third of the urban population lives) as an important means of absorbing future urban residents in a sustainable, inclusive, and efficient manner. These cities have the potential to generate sufficient economies of scale to cluster local economic activities, while their proximity to the rural population supports rural and urban integration, and balances the development of industry and job markets nationally and in each province. Although they benefit from some advantages, they suffer from a deficit of infrastructure and municipal services, resulting in environmental pollution and constrained economic development. The capacity of medium-sized cities to pilot, implement, and replicate efficient urban infrastructure and municipal service delivery best practices will play an essential role in the quality and livability of the country''s urban development.
Development in Jilin Province is centered in the cities of Changchun and Jilin, and improvements barely reach the remote, less-developed prefectures in the southeast and northwest, where Baishan (480,000 residents) and Baicheng (330,000 residents) cities, respectively, are located. The Jilin provincial government (JPG) has formulated a strategy that prioritizes development of the two cities, seeking to increase economic activity, decrease the poverty rates in their respective areas, and balance development within the province.
Critical infrastructure gaps that prevent sustainable development of Baichang and Baishan cities have been identified. Residential areas in western Baicheng the Baicheng Economic Development Zone (BEDZ) have grown without proper access to central municipal services. An estimated 25,000 residents are not yet connected to the central wastewater treatment plant, and discharge wastewater into the surrounding environment or into unimproved septic tanks. A rational road network is absent within the BEDZ to provide adequate urban services to the existing population, properly connects the area to the rest of Baicheng, and facilitate the development of mixed-function areas to accommodate future residents and economic activities. The city''s current road design allows little room for promoting public and nonmotorized transport.
The current daily generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) is 420 wet tons per day (t/d) in Baicheng and 330 wet t/d in Baishan. In Baicheng, a new sanitary landfill is under construction. In Baishan, the existing landfill is being rehabilitated and will reach its maximum capacity in 3 years. In the two cities, solid waste management relies on _truck and dump_ operations, with little consideration for 3R principles, and limited disposal options. This results in pollution and inefficient use of waste resources.
Baishan''s water supply has reached its full capacity and cannot ensure 24-hour water services. Currently, 30% of the population (144,000 people) lacks full-time access to water. The recent decline in the quality and quantity of the main water source (Dayangcha River) in Jiangyuan district combined with the growing population of Hunjiang district are putting Baishan''s water supply safety at significant risk. Previously inadequate technical standards, aging pipes, and poor water supply dispatching efficiency have resulted in nonrevenue water (NRW) in Baishan reaching 65%; this in turn has caused inefficient water use, loss of income, and excessive energy consumption.
|Impact||Improved economic growth, resource efficiency, and quality of life in Baicheng and Baishan cities.|
|Description of Outcome||Improved delivery and efficiency of municipal services in Baicheng and Baishan cities.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||An inception mission was fielded on 6-10 February 2015. The loan was signed on 27 February and became effective on 8 May 2015. All consultants were hired by Q2 2015. A special project administration mission was fielded on 13-16 October 2015, and a review mission was fielded on 25-29 July 2016. Two minor changes to the project have been approved: (i) updating the procurement plan following the new thresholds under ADB's Procurement Reform 10-Point Action Plan (5 November 2015), and (ii) changing the PIU for the Baishan water supply subproject to Baishan Hengda Drainage Engineering Co., Ltd. (27 November 2015). The first advance of $2 million for the advance fund was disbursed in Q4 2015. Counterpart funds have been confirmed for 2018. Procurement activities are ongoing and are at various stages of completion. Nine out of 20 contracts for the urban infrastructure component and two out of eight contracts for an integrated solid waste management system component in Baicheng have been awarded. There have been delays for the improved water supply management component for Baishan, but procurement activities are expected to intensify in 2018 after completion of the geo-survey and finalization of the detailed designs. Three out of 11 contracts for the water supply management component and all six contracts for the integrated solid waste management component in Baishan have been awarded. The midterm review mission was held on 14-25 August 2017. A review mission was fielded on 21-25 May 2018 to discuss utilization of loan savings and possible loan extension. A second midterm review mission on 13-21 August 2018 assessed progress and determined the appropriateness of a proposed loan extension for 3 years, for which a minor change in scope will be processed. On 4 December 2018, the loan closing date was extended for 3 years to 30 June 2022, and baseline projections were revised accordingly. A review mission on 10-14 December 2018 worked with the EA to develop a comprehensive scope change incorporating additional feasible project components that will utilize current and expected loan savings and allow for increased ADB financing percentage for remaining components. Further change of scope will be processed and 100% contract awards are expected by Q1 2020.|
