Environmental infrastructure development for Yunnan Urban Environment Project in China
The Yunnan Urban Environment Project for China will assist Yunnan Province in improving the effectiveness and coverage of critical urban infrastructure services in selected counties and the effectiveness of lake basin management in Dianchi, through investments in systems for the management of wastewater, water supply, solid waste, river environment, and cultural heritage. There are two components to the project. The first component of the project is urban environmental infrastructure development. This component will help key counties develop critical urban environment service infrastructure by the development of solid waste management services systems, wastewater and water supply systems, cultural heritage management, river improvement measures, and capacity building for environment monitoring and project management. The second component of the project is integrated lake basin management. The Dianchi component will assist Kunming in establishing better integrated lake management systems through technical assistance in policy actions and the development of monitoring systems.
