Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)
The TA inception mission was conducted in July 2021. The TA inception report was suggested to be revised according to the following notes: (i) the whole Huangshui River basin in Qinghai Province should be defined as the TA scope; (ii) the current situation, system analysis, and new concepts such as peak carbon dioxide emissions (policy) and climate change (natural environment) should also be included in the discussion content of the report; and (iii) it is recommended that the national study tour be carried out jointly with the TA consultant team of TA 6657-PRC: Improving Policies and Planning for Nature-Positive Development in the Huangshui River Source Area, with the budget to be provided by TA 6616-PRC: Research on Comprehensive Management Planning Policy of Huangshui Basin in Qinghai Province. Climate change was included in the report during the discussion since it is not only a challenge for the Huangshui River Basin but also an opportunity. The mission proposed adding a national climate change specialist to work with the TA consultants. The draft TA interim report in Chinese was submitted in September 2022 and revised according to comments from ADB and the implementing agency. The final inception report was submitted to ADB in September 2022. An onsite review mission was held in Qinghai Province on 28-29 March 2023 due to COVID-19 in the PRC. The TA was extended from 31 December 2022 to 31 December 2023 to allow sufficient time to complete all activities planned under the TA. The draft final report in Chinese was submitted on 28 September 2023. The institutional reform of implementing agency and COVID policy had delayed the progress.
