the strategy's emphasis on mainstreaming climate change considerations and support for green finance. The program supports financial
sector development, one of the private sector operational focuses identified in the country partnership strategy. It also supports the
implementation of the PRC's twelfth Five-Year Plan, which accentuates resource conservation and environmental protection and attaches
top priority to improving energy efficiency, reducing pollution emissions, and developing cleaner and renewable energy.

|Involuntary Resettlement||The program will fund the leasing of buses running on cleaner fuels, buses that are energy-efficient or use new energy sources, and conventional buses that meet the most advanced environmental regulatory thresholds for emissions. The project will not cause involuntary resettlement impact.|
|Indigenous Peoples||The program will fund the leasing of buses running on cleaner fuels, buses that are energy-efficient or use new energy sources, and conventional buses that meet the most advanced environmental regulatory thresholds for emissions. The project will not impact on Indigenous Peoples (IPs) or IP communities.|
