The development objective of Hubei Inland Waterway Improvement Project for China is to improve inland waterway transport capacity and reliability along the Han River in support of low carbon development. This project has two components. 1) The first component, Yakou Navigation-Hydropower Complex, aims at the construction of the Yakou Infrastructure Complex, comprising inter alia, the following structures: (i) A Grade III ship lock of up to 1,000 DWT vessel capacity; (ii) dam sluice gates; (iii) a powerhouse of up to seventy five megawatts (MW )capacity; (iv) a connection dam in three sections, connecting structures between the Han River banks; (v) fish pass and fish reproduction facilities; and (vi) a dam crest-access bridge in several sections along the ship lock, sluice gates and powerhouse. 2) The second component, Institutional Strengthening, aims to carry out : (i) technical assistance activities and training to enhance the institutional capacity of the Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) management authorities, particularly in areas related to IWT management, project management, sectoral policies, environment management, safety management, and waterway information systems; and (ii) a detailed cumulative impact assessment (CIA) and mitigation plan development for the conservation of fisheries and habitats in the Han River.
