|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The Government of the People's Republic of China (PRC) requested ADB to provide lending support to demonstrate high efficiency water utilization in rocky desertification area in Guizhou Province. The proposed project is included in ADB's country operations business plan, 2015 2017 and the ensuing loan in ADB's 2018 lending pipeline for the PRC. Since the executing agency, GPG, and implementing agencies, ACG and NCG, are not familiar with ADB's project preparation requirements, it is necessary to provide a PPTA to help the GPG, ACG, and NCG prepare the project that complies with ADB's requirements and includes best international practices.|

|Consulting Services||The GPG will be the executing agency and the ACG and NCG will be the implementing agencies of the PPTA. A project leading group has been established in the GPG to provide overall guidance for PPTA implementation. A project management office will be established in Guizhou Water Resources Investment Co., Ltd that is under jurisdiction of Guizhou Provincial Water Resources Department and 100% GPG-owned company, to administer day-to-day PPTA activities. The PPTA will be implemented over 10 months tentatively from 25 January to 25 November 2016. Equipment for PPTA consultants will be procured following ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time), and handed over to the GPG, ACG, and/or NCG upon PPTA completion. Disbursement under the PPTA will be in line with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).|
