Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Government of Karnataka (GOK) has long recognized that North Karnataka is lagging behind the rest of the state in economic progress as well as quality of life. Indeed, the High Power Committee Report for Redressal of Regional Imbalances noted that the economy of North Karnataka has been worse off than that of other parts of the state for more than four decades. The economy is primarily based on agriculture, with more than 36% of the workforce employed in this sector. Average per capita income in all districts in North Karnataka are lower than the state average. Of the 78 clusters of urban local bodies (ULBs) defined as suffering from abject poverty (more than 40% of the population below the poverty line), 48 are located in North Karnataka.

In order to address these, GOK is implementing the North Karnataka Urban Sector Investment Program (the Investment Program) which aims at improving urban infrastructure and services in 25 ULBs in North Karnataka.

Impact Improved quality of life in 14 ULBs in North Karnataka.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Project 4 is classified as category B for environment. Fifteen IEEs were prepared and disclosed for this project. IEEs show no significant impacts are envisioned and project locations are located outside sensitive areas. Any impacts during construction and operation will be avoided and/or mitigated through measures identified in the EMP which will form part of the bidding and contract documents. Implementation of IEEs will be monitored by the PMU and PIUs with assistance from the supervision consultants. Safeguard reporting from the PMU to ADB will be done on a semi-annual basis.
Involuntary Resettlement Project 4 is classified as category B for involuntary resettlement. An RP was prepared and disclosed for the Hospet sewerage subproject to address acquisition of private agricultural land (15.28 acres) affecting 11 landowners (60 affected persons). Temporary impacts to mobile vendors and hawkers and shops along roads with linear works will be avoided through careful EMP implementation (i.e., planks for continued access, traffic management, night works, and assistance for shifting mobile vendors). Implementation of RPs will be monitored by the PMU and PIUs with assistance from the supervision consultants and NGOs. Safeguard reporting from the PMU to ADB will be done on a semi-annual basis. The executing agency has dedicated staff overseeing safeguards implementation, and receives capacity support from consultants to implement and monitor safeguards compliance.
