Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed Investment Program is highly relevant to ADB's country strategy and program (CSP) for India, which rests on the three pillars of: (i) pro-poor growth for reducing income poverty; (ii) social development for reducing human poverty; and (iii) good governance for leveraging and maximizing the impact of development.
Impact Improved quality of life in program ULBs and increased economic growth relative to the whole state.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects These IEEs show that net environmental benefits are positive and large including: (i) improved urban environment from sewerage subprojects leading to improved public health; (ii) reduced flooding through drainage improvements; and (iii) improved water quality through lake development schemes. Investments around heritage sites will support tourism through improved management, parking, and sanitation. Any impacts during construction and operation will not be significant as larger facilities will be built in low density and non-sensitive areas. The environmental management plans contained within the IEEs will form part of the bidding and contract documents.
Involuntary Resettlement It is designed to minimize land acquisition and resettlement impacts and facilities will be accommodated mostly within government-owned land or the public right-of-way. The proposed sewerage treatment plant in Yadgir requires 22.25 acres of private agricultural land affecting seven households (37 affected persons). The implementation of the resettlement plan will be monitored by the PMU and program implementation unit with assistance from the supervision consultant and NGO. Safeguard reporting from the PMU to ADB will be done on a semi-annual basis. The mission confirmed the voluntary land resettlement for the Sindhanur impounding reservoir. KUIDFC substantiated this by evidencing: (i) open negotiations with the land owners, and (ii) alternative project location options in the event negotiations had not succeeded. The mission visited the site and confirmed that the land was vacant dry land. For Gadag, where the section of the raw water transmission pipeline is to be laid in the shoulder of the State Highway 45, no works will begin in relevant sections until compensation has been paid as per ADB's approved resettlement plan for Loan 2705.
