Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects All identified adverse impacts resulting from the location, design, construction, and operation of the water management infrastructure are expected to be small to moderate and can be mitigated. Further updating of the environmental management plan will be undertaken before the commencement of site-specific construction activities.
Involuntary Resettlement About 792 households (3,960 people) will be affected, including about 384 households (1,920 people) severely affected by potentially losing more than 10% of their productive land and/or productive assets. The total land take is estimated at 277.51 ha. A resettlement plan has been endorsed by the government and disclosed on ADB's website. The government has shown a commitment to managing social risks, but institutional capacity building is still necessary and is included in the project.
Indigenous Peoples No indigenous people maintaining distinct cultural identities or separate cultural traditions were found to reside in the project area.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Stakeholder consultations were conducted during the Project preparation, including during resettlement plan preparations and socio economic surveys in all areas covered by the Project District governments and officials of the communes, representatives of Women's Unions, Youth Organizations and potential affected people participated in various consultations. Focus group discussions with women were also conducted. Project Information Booklets written in the local languages were distributed and explained to the participants during those meetings. During inventory of losses the potential Affected Peoples were consulted on their initial preferences for resettlement and informed of the compensation and entitlement.
During Project Implementation

Consultation and participatory design of interventions and processes will commence starting from the preparation and implementation of land acquisition and resettlement plans towards the technical design and implementation of subprojects, in collaboration with displaced persons and stakeholders. Consultation will also be conducted during the process of updating the resettlement planning documents and participatory monitoring tools will be used throughout the project period.

Community based disaster risk management actions will be supported in parallel to each infrastrucuture investment to ensure maximum ownership and understanding of the investments in each community. Careful communications and participatory approaches will be used extensively to facilitate the develop of the capacity of each community to prepare for and recover from flood and drought events, and to manage the sustainable operation and maintenance of the infrastruture developed through the proiect.
