Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy During the country programming mission held in Manila in October 2013, the government of the People's Republic of China requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to assist the governments of Heilongjiang Province and Jiamusi Municipality in preparing the Heilongjiang Jiamusi Irrigation and Drainage System Modernization Project. The project is included in ADB's lending program for 2016 standby under the country operations business plan, 2014 2016 for the People's Republic of China. A project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) is required to undertake due diligence in technical, safeguards, economic and financial, and poverty and social areas. The PPTA will help ensure compliance with ADB's requirements and incorporation of international best practices in the project design.

During Project Design

The main project stakeholders are the Jiamusi government as borrower, agencies involved in project execution and implementation such as the executing and implementing agencies, the beneficiaries of the irrigation systems to be modernized, the private sector and cooperatives, agricultural enterprises, and the people affected by land acquisition.

The executing and implementing agencies, as well as local governments and beneficiaries, will be consulted during PPTA. The affected households will be consulted during the preparation of a resettlement plan by the executing agency.

The PPTA will consult with the CSOs relevant for the project, such as cooperatives, farmer associations, and WUAs; and their participation in implementation of project activities will be ensured.

During Project Implementation
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services It is expected that 10 person-months (pm) of international and 32 pm of national consultants are 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.
Procurement The equipment will be procured by the consulting firm following ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time) and will be handed over to the executing agency upon completion of the PPTA.
