Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects An environmental assessment and review framework (EARF), and initial environmental examinations, including environmental management plans (EMPs) for sample subprojects have been prepared. The EARF sets out the requirements for project screening and classification, subproject selection, information disclosure to, and consultation with, the affected people, EMP development and implementation, and monitoring and reporting. The initial environmental examinations found the planned subprojects to have only small and localized adverse impacts on the environment, which can be managed by the mitigation measures proposed in the EMPs. IFAD and KfW indicated that they will require that the subprojects financed by them in parallel comply with the same environmental standards as those financed by ADB.
Involuntary Resettlement It is expected that there will be some land acquisition and minor physical displacement required on many of the road sub-projects as they will be raised and widened to provide climate resilience. Land acquisition and resettlement will be negligible under the market and cyclone shelter components, as construction is expected to remain within existing boundaries or on government lands. The government expects that much of the land acquisition will be through voluntary donation. As refusal to donate land or enter into a negotiated financial settlement would necessarily lead to expropriation (in order to retain climate resilient design integrity), any sub-project that entails land acquisition (either through voluntary or involuntary means) or physical displacement will be subject to a resettlement plan. As the project is sector like, and most of the sub-projects are not yet selected, a resettlement framework has been prepared. This will guide the preparation and implementation of land acquisition and resettlement activities across the entire project. Resettlement plans have been prepared for two sample sub-projects and a due diligence for one sub-project which can be used as an example for future planning. IFAD and KfW indicated that they will require that the subprojects financed by them in parallel comply with the same social safeguards standards as those financed by ADB.
Indigenous Peoples Project preparation indicated that there were no indigenous people (IP) communities within the context of ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement, impacted by any of the three sample sub-projects analyzed. Given that there will be many more sub-projects designed and undertaken over the course of the project, and the project area contains small numbers of distinct and vulnerable IP communities, a Small Ethnic Communities Planning Framework has been developed to guide the screening and planning process during implementation. IFAD and KfW indicated that they will require that the subprojects financed by them in parallel comply with the same social safeguards standards as those financed by ADB.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The initial stakeholders are the Ministries of Finance, Planning, and Local Government, Rural development and Cooperatives of Government of Bangladesh. The executing agency will be Local Government Engineering Department. At the local level, stakeholders include local administration, union councils, farmers, market users and general people of the project area. Both women and men have stake in all categories of infrastructure. Various line departments and their local offices will also be involved. The demand group includes farmers, retail traders and businessmen, small entrepreneurs, wholesale traders, woman traders, poor and vulnerable women, rickshaw pullers and van drivers, transport owners, school and college teachers, students and other people of the community.

Different types of consultation and participation will be required at various levels. The PPTA will be implemented through a participatory and consultative approach with the executing agency staff, and other stakeholders. Stakeholder consultation will be a key activity to reach consensus on the project designs.
During Project Implementation The PPTA will assess the participation methods and lessons from the ongoing rural infrastructure projects and identify ways for effective stakeholder participation during the implementation phase. An effective, practical and inclusive participation strategy will be developed based on the findings of the consultations and considering the needs and interests of diverse groups of the population. It will also include strengthening capacity of LGED and union councils in managing a participatory development process.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Two consulting packages will be procured under the project: (i) the Design and Supervision Consultants will be engaged to undertake detailed design, draft bidding documents and supervise the construction works, and the (ii) Management Support Consultants will support the PMO and will be responsible for delivery of all capacity building services. Consultants will be engaged through consulting firms (international). Consulting firms will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a quality/cost ratio of 90/10 and full-technical proposals.
Procurement The project will involve procurement of civil works, vehicles , equipment, and training/workshop/studies packages through international and national competitive bidding procedures, or shopping, as appropriate. All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines. For IFAD and KfW, their procurement guidelines will be followed.
