Description The impact of the project will be improved quality of life and sustained economic development in the ETMAP. The outcome of the project will be improved environmental and flood management in the upper Qing river basin. The project will have four components: (i) Improved water pollution control; (ii) Enhanced flood management; (iii) Improved institutional capacity of water resource management; and (iv) Project management support and capacity development.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Inadequate wastewater collection and treatment, extensive nonpoint source pollution, and recurrent flooding combine to undermine living standards and sustainable economic development in the Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture (ETMAP) of Hubei Province in the People's Republic of China (PRC). The Hubei Enshi Qing River Upstream Environment Rehabilitation Project will address these and other concerns and will support: (i) improved water pollution control; (ii) enhanced flood management; (iii) improved institutional capacity for water resource management; and (iv) project management support and capacity development.

To address problems of water pollution and flooding, the provincial government has formulated the Qing River Basin Pollution Prevention and Control Master Plan and the Enshi Qing River Flood Control Master Plan. Although some progress has been made in pollution control and flood protection, several fundamental problems remain unresolved due to inadequate resources of the local governments. To help implement components of the provincial 12th Five-Year Plan and the master plans for pollution control and flood protection, the government has requested ADB to provide investment and technical assistance support for the project.

The proposed project is fully consistent with PRC's 12th Five-Year Plan and ADB's Country Partnership Strategy for the PRC by improving public health and quality of life through reducing pollution load and managing flood risks.
