China, People's Republic of: Integrated Framework for Cost-Effective Disaster Risk Management

Sovereign (Public) Project | 54447-001

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will provide policy recommendations and technical guidance for disaster risk management (DRM) based on natural hazard characteristics, exposure, and physical and socioeconomic vulnerabilities. Specifically, the TA will develop frameworks, build capacity, provide technical guidance, and define cost-effective options for DRM in the People's Republic of China (PRC). The TA will foster regional partnerships among the PRC and neighboring countries on improving disaster preparedness and resilience.

The TA is included in the indicative country operations business plan for the PRC, 2021 -2023. The TA is aligned with the country partnership strategy for the PRC, 2021 -2025 (strategic priority 2) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and supports all seven operational priorities of ADB's Strategy 2030.

Description

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will provide policy recommendations and technical guidance for disaster risk management (DRM) based on natural hazard characteristics, exposure, and physical and socioeconomic vulnerabilities. Specifically, the TA will develop frameworks, build capacity, provide technical guidance, and define cost-effective options for DRM in the People's Republic of China (PRC). The TA will foster regional partnerships among the PRC and neighboring countries on improving disaster preparedness and resilience.

The TA is included in the indicative country operations business plan for the PRC, 2021 -2023. The TA is aligned with the country partnership strategy for the PRC, 2021 -2025 (strategic priority 2) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and supports all seven operational priorities of ADB's Strategy 2030.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The TA will build on the government's efforts and partner with four executing agencies. The TA will (i) improve the understanding of disaster risk in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region (GZAR); (ii) develop solutions for disaster resilience strengthening, including (a) recommendations and measures to reduce disaster risk in GZAR; (b) an flood storage and detention area model customized to local socioeconomic development and climate change; and (c) resilient city development, including urban planning, construction, and management, with a focus on smart technologies, operation, and financing; (iii) conduct research on rapid action teams for flood and typhoon response in Fujian Province; and (iv) foster regional collaboration on investment in resilience. The TA will cover a wide geographic area encompassing provinces and cities at various levels of economic development, which provide a basis to assess the cost-effectiveness of various options for investment in resilience. The TA will foster institutional coordination among the four implementing agencies, strengthening institutional cooperation and disaster risk governance. The TA will generate regional public goods by promoting knowledge and experience sharing among the PRC and selected disaster-prone countries, and by establishing bilateral and multilateral frameworks to promote investment in resilience, supported by the Greater Mekong Subregion Urban Development Strategic Framework, 2015 -2022 and the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation 2030 Strategic Framework.
