Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

A core objective of the 11th Five-Year Plan (2007-2012) of the Government is reducing regional disparities. Investments in infrastructure and services in the North Eastern Region (NER), one of India's less-developed regions, are priority. The 10th and 11th plans highlight the vital role of capital cities in NER's socioeconomic transformation. Given the difficult access to and remoteness of NER, the capital cities perform a function of a much higher order than other cities of similar size in India. With the opening up of trade with neighboring countries and the emergence of transport corridors in the region, these cities are expected to play an even greater strategic role in NER's economy as commercial and business hubs besides being administrative centers. Investments in urban infrastructure and services will be the key to unleashing the potential of these cities to catalyze the growth of NER.

The 11th plan also stresses the importance of improving the quality of governance and service delivery systems, to pace NER's development. NERCCDIP, as well as the sector road maps from which it is derived, is guided by this policy framework. Its aim is to contribute to the Government's goal of bringing the NER up to par with developed regions of India. The Program links capital investments to reforms for sustainable impact. It targets the capital cities that will spearhead the development of NER linking India to the neighboring states.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The Program plans to achieve sustainable urban development in the Project Cities of Agartala, Aizawl, Kohima, Gangtok and Shillong through investments in urban infrastructure sectors. The urban infrastructure and services improvement is proposed in the following sectors (i) water supply, (ii) sewerage and sanitation, and (iii) solid waste management. Initial environmental examinations (IEEs) were prepared for Tranche 2 subprojects in compliance with Government of India rules and ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (SPS, 2009).
Involuntary Resettlement All subprojects were appraised and no significant resettlement impacts are anticipated. The Program plans to achieve sustainable urban development in the Project Cities of Agartala, Aizawl, Kohima, Gangtok and Shillong through investments in urban infrastructure sectors. Four Resettlement Plans (RPs) were prepared for Tranche 2 subprojects in compliance with Government of India laws and ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (SPS, 2009).
Indigenous Peoples The Program is prepared in accordance with ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (SPS, 2009) and the Indigenous Peoples Planning Framework (IPPF). Meaningful consultations will continue during implementation to ensure awareness and participation of the project communities.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

Stakeholders were involved in developing the IEEs through face-to-face discussions and on-site public meetings in five cities.

Resettlement plans were prepared in consultation with stakeholders during the Tranche 2 subprojects preparation. Local language versions of subproject resettlement plans will be made available in relevant government agencies in each town, and in State Investment Program Management and Implementation Unit (SIPMIU). Tranche 2 subproject resettlement plans (draft and final versions) will be disclosed on ADB's website and the SIPMIU websites.

During Project Implementation Information dissemination and consultation will continue throughout Investment Program implementation. The SIPMIUs will ensure the consultation process is continued and expanded during Investment Program implementation to ensure that stakeholders participate fully in subproject execution.
