China, People's Republic of : Policy and Systems of Synergistically Reducing Pollution and Carbon Emissions in Industry in the Yellow River Basin

Sovereign Project | 54026-017

The technical assistance (TA) subproject supports the cluster TA 0048-PRC: Strengthening Capacity, Institutions, and Policies for Enabling High-Quality, Green Development in the Yellow River Ecological Corridor (YREC) of the Asian Development Bank. The YREC program is a multisector programmatic approach that supports the goals of the People's Republic of China's Yellow River Basin (YRB) Ecological Protection and High-quality Development Program, 2021-2035, to prioritize ecological protection and promote high-quality green development in the YRB. The TA cluster has the following outcome: high-quality, green development opportunities in the YRB increased. The TA cluster comprises a series of subprojects, each focused on different aspects of river basin management, to help achieve the aims of the YREC program. The TA cluster was approved on 28 October 2020.
