People’s Republic of China: Guangdong Energy Efficiency and Environment Improvement Investment Program, Tranche 3 and Multitranche Financing Facility

About three-fourths of Guangdong’s generation capacity was coal-fired, which caused serious air pollution and acid rain. Also, ambient air quality started to fail in meeting national air quality standards. The energy intensity of Guangdong’s economy was also relatively high by international standards at 3.4 times the average of member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Improvements in energy efficiency in Guangdong were expected to lower energy consumption and the need for additional power generation capacity, thus saving energy, reducing adverse environmental impacts, relieving energy shortages, and improving energy security.

The multitranche financing facility investment program’s expected impact was an improvement in energy security and environmental conditions in Guangdong province.

Bhutan: Strengthening Economic Management Program

The program adopted a two-pronged approach to negotiate the challenges of weak economic management in Bhutan. First, it aimed to improve fiscal management to help the government allocate scarce resources more effectively and efficiently. Second, it aimed to improve monetary management to ensure that interest rate policy better matched the demand and supply of loanable funds, thereby improving liquidity management. This approach was to be reinforced by strengthening the internal and external audit systems to improve the monitoring of public resources and strengthen administrative and financial efficiency and accountability including at the subnational level of government. The program supported policy and institutional improvements in four core areas: (i) fiscal management, (ii) debt management, (iii) monetary and liquidity management, and (iv) internal and external audit operations. Five separately approved ADB technical assistance grants spread over 2010–2012 supported capacity building in these and other related areas.
