China, People's Republic of: Jiangxi Xinyu Kongmu River Watershed Flood Control and Environmental Improvement Project
The project will demonstrate harmonization of development and flood and environmental management in the river basin that is a manageable size for project level intervention, using an integrated river basin model. One demonstration will be an introduction of innovative storm water management systems. Urban development increases storm water runoff by cutting trees and covering grounds with concrete or asphalt. Innovative storm water management systems reduce peak storm water runoff by promoting storm water infiltration into soil and increasing storm water retention. The demonstration and the river basin model can be replicated in other many similar-sized river basins, particularly where development is anticipated. Potential climate change impact assessment and sensitivity analysis of flood control structures' capacities will be conducted based on climate change modeling.

Potential climate change impact assessment and sensitivity analysis of flood control structures' capacities will be conducted based on climate change modeling. The use of sensitivity analysis to examine potential climate change impacts and risks of flood control structures can be also replicated to other projects. The project will help XCG review Xinyu City Master Plan for 2008 6 2030 and revisit city's infrastructure planning, which will be another ADB's value addition.
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
Xinyu City is located in Jiangxi Province, 135 kilometer (km) southwest of Nanchang Municipality, the provincial capital. The total area of Xinyu is 3,178 square kilometers (km2), and the total population is 1.16 million. Xinyu is a new industrial city with fast urbanization. Kongmu River is a 49.5 km river which flows in Xinyu including the main city center into Yuanhe River. Yuanhe River is a tributary of Ganjiang River which flows into Yangtze River through Poyang Lake. All Kongmu River watersheds of 597 km2 are in Xinyu. Kongmu River is a source of water supply for Xinyu. The river includes a wetland park which is a major recreational asset.
|Impact||Quality of the living environment in Xinyu City improved (Xinyu City Master Plan, 2008 2030)|
|Description of Outcome||Flood and environmental management in the upper Kongmu River watershed improved|
|Progress Toward Outcome||
The delays in project implementation was affected by the ongoing adjustment of the New Highspeed Railway Districts planning, where the project will be implemented.
The adjustment was needed to meet the new PRC Governments policies and regulations on new urbanization. The city government has formed a high-level authority (HSR New District Administration Committee-upgraded from the existing one) to adjust planning including coordination with the IA for the implementation of the project. This planning authority has been reformulated in November 2019, which will finalize the HSR planning by mid-2020. Although several civil work packages will not be affected by these adjustments in the districts plan, some of the remaining packages may need to be adjusted to align with the new development plan.
A virtual loan review mission for the project was undertaken from 26 May 2020 to 3 June 2020.The Midterm Review Mission was undertaken on 27 November 2020, the meeting held discussion with relevant officials on following matters: (i) Project implementing Status; (ii) Proposed scope changes; (iii) Project implementation plan and (v) Safeguard matters.
Cumulative contract awards amount is 16.276 million USD, disbursement amount is 9.325 million USD.
|Description of Project Outputs||
Integrated rural and urban flood management infrastructure constructed
Solid waste and wastewater management systems improved
Flood and environmental risk management capacity enhanced
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||Implementation ongoing. Implementation ongoing. Wastewater components will be transformed to a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) instead of original proposed Xiacun WWTP.Implementation ongoing.|
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||The project is expected to achieve environmental benefits through a comprehensive green planning approach. Design targets include (i) capturing 75% of annual runoff (to improve flood control), (ii) a 40% reduction in stormwater pollutant loads, (iii) provision of sanitary sewer connections for over 57,000 people, (iv) almost 100% coverage for solid waste collection in two settlements, (v) new public green spaces, (iv) improved quality of life, and (vii) improved water resources management.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||The project will permanently acquire 2,290.48 mu of collective land and demolish 24,657.06 square meters of housing in two towns, one subdistrict, and five villages with 13 village groups. Land acquisition will affect 1,078 households and 3,693 persons. House demolition will affect 56 households, with 287 persons requiring relocation of their houses.|
|Indigenous Peoples||The project is classified category C for indigenous peoples. The project does not involve any distinct ethnic minority community and thus does not trigger requirements under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design|
|During Project Implementation||The IEE and EMP are based on the approved domestic feasibility study report and environmental assessments,site visits, and consultations with stakeholders, including with affected persons.|
|Consulting Services||All ADB-financed consultants will be hired following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).|
|Procurement||All ADB-financed procurement will be conducted following ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).|
