Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Hebi City Government (HCG) requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to provide lending support to implement environmental improvement and ecological conservation in and around Qihe River. The proposed project is included in ADB's country operations business plan, 2014- 2016 and the ensuing loan in ADB''s 2016 lending pipeline for the People''s Republic of China (PRC). Since the HCG is not familiar with ADB''s project preparation requirements, it is necessary to provide a project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) to help the HCG prepare the project that complies with ADB''s requirements and can introduce best international practices in the project design.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

Main stakeholders are the Hebi City Government and the governments of Qibin District and Qi and Xun Counties, which will be the executing and implementing agencies, as well as project neighborhoods and villages. Beneficiaries are represented through their village committees. The stakeholders will be consulted during project design to ensure the project design corresponds to their needs. Particularly, negatively-affected people will be consulted through participatory meetings, to ensure their voices are heard.

During the PPTA, nonstructural measures which will benefit poor and vulnerable people will be identified. These would include activities to manage environment and floods, such as community-based flood and environmental management.

The project will have economic and physical displacement impacts that have to be mitigated, and people to be displaced will be consulted. Poor and vulnerable displaced people should be better off after displacement, through livelihood restoration measures.

The key, active, and relevant civil society organizations in the project area and the level of participation in the project design are (i) information generation and sharing; and (ii) consulation with village and neighborhood representation, women's federation, and community-based groups.

The design of livelihood restoration measures for people to be displaced and the design of nonstructural measures will need the participation of poor and vulnerable beneficiaries.

During Project Implementation
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The PPTA will be carried out by a team of consultants. A total of 13.0 person-months of international and 33.5 person-months of national consulting services will be required. The consulting firm will be selected by (i) inviting simplified technical proposals; and (ii) using the quality- and cost-based selection method, with a quality cost ratio of 80:20. All consulting services will be engaged in accordance with ADB s Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
