Published By: Asian Development Bank Institute | Published Date: May, 01 , 2015

The key steps were (i) the development of a coherent and comprehensive master plan, (ii) the creation of an administrative structure that places most of the upper catchment within the jurisdiction of a single administrative body (Hefei City), and (iii) the creation of the Chao Lake Management Authority (CLMA) as the institution with prime authority and responsibility for managing the lake.
