The policy advisory technical assistance (TA) will study the institutionalization of Urban-Rural Environmental Master Planning (UREMP) in the People's Republic of China (PRC). UREMP will address key environmental issues and enable an environmentally sustainable model for the PRC's future urban development. UREMP is conceptualized as a required, legally binding instrument prior to and providing input for the development of land-use plans and urban master plans. UREMP will include urban-rural ecosystems analysis and landscape planning, and be prepared using domestic and international state-of-the-art methods. The Ministry of Environmental Protection of the PRC, the executing agency of the TA, has initiated a preliminary version of a management and technical support document for UREMP and this TA will build on and improve it into a technical and policy instrument that will suitably position UREMP within the PRC''s environmental and planning system.
