One urban water supply subproject (Yudongxia) and two rural water supply and irrigation subprojects (Baianhe and Liaojiuzhai) were completed, four rural water supply and irrigation subprojects

(Jinlong, Jiancaogou, Jinjiaqing, and Maozhuling) are being implemented, and two urban water supply subprojects (Hongyan reservoir and Hongyan water treatment plant) will be implemented.

Originally, this component was planned to include 7 subprojects (1 core and 6 noncore). 6 noncore subprojects and major portion of the core subproject have withdrawn from the project. Only the remaining quite small portion of the core subproject for rehabilitation of 431.66 ha will be implemented under the project.

A team of consultants is assisting the Guiyang municipal government in implementing integrated water resources management and shifting from water supply control to water demand control. In November 2014, a water sector management structure has been established with the creation of the Guiyang Municipal Water Service Administration Bureau.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The Project's environmental impact and benefits are evaluated in general terms and cumulatively for the Master Plan as a whole. The environmental assessments of individual core subprojects provide a more detailed assessment of environmental benefits and impacts at the subproject level. A summary environmental impact assessment (SEIA) covering the core subprojects was categorized as environmental category A and a summary initial environmental examination (SIEE) covering the remaining three core subprojects were prepared in accordance with the PRC's environmental assessment technical guidelines and ADB's Environment Policy. The soil and water conservation activities of the Project provide the most obvious and direct environmental benefits. For the other activities, especially the construction of reservoirs, there is a trade-off between development and livelihood benefits, and adverse environmental impacts, which will occur while under construction and during operation of the subproject facilities. However, each subproject environmental assessment concludes that the overall balance is favorable, and that the adverse environmental impacts are manageable with appropriate mitigation measures that have been identified and incorporated in the subprojects' environmental management plan (EMP). The environmental assessment of noncore subprojects to be prepared and implemented under the Project will be undertaken in accordance with the provisions of the EARF that have been agreed with the EA.
Involuntary Resettlement

Resettlement impacts were assessed in detail for the six core subprojects, and the selected noncore subprojects were screened for potential impacts, of which 53 subprojects* may involve land acquisition and resettlement. For the entire Project, it is estimated that about 6,300 persons* will be affected by land loss; and about 12,800 mu of land* will be acquired for the Project, of which about 5,900 mu (46%)* is cultivated land. The houses of about 1,200 persons* will have to be relocated. For the core subprojects, the resettlement impacts are relatively small except for the Yudongxia reservoir subproject. The Guiyang PMO has prepared and ADB has approved the resettlement plan for the Yudongxia subproject and three resettlement plans for the Jinlong, Liaojiuzhai, and Wudang subprojects. No resettlement plans are required for the other two core subprojects, as these do not involve land acquisition or involuntary resettlement. Based on satisfactory resettlement experience in Guizhou Province, the EA and local governments were assessed to have the capacity to manage resettlement impacts properly. The IAs will fund the resettlement costs according to the standards set out in the resettlement plans, based on national policies and local regulations. Entitlements will be provided to affected persons before demolition and ground leveling commence, and before any loss of land. A resettlement information booklet was distributed to those affected through village offices, and the resettlement plans for the four core subprojects were made available at the village offices.

Compensation for land acquisition, residential housing, and nonresidential housing will be paid to all users regardless of whether titled or not. For land acquisition, compensation includes land compensation, resettlement subsidy, and compensation for young crops. The land compensation will be paid to the affected village and/or affected persons and the resettlement subsidy and other compensation for individual asset loss will be paid to the affected persons. For small businesses and housing demolition, compensation will be paid directly to owners in cash according to the appraised value of the land and fixed property assets. Income losses resulting from reduced production/sales and wages caused by the Project will be assessed and compensated to affected persons in cash.

For subsequent noncore subprojects, resettlement plans will be prepared based on the detailed engineering designs and resettlement impact surveys. A resettlement framework providing procedural guidelines for the EA and IAs to follow has been agreed upon between GMG and ADB. The PMO, assisted by the IAs, will be responsible for monitoring resettlement plan implementation and submitting progress reports to ADB. A regular reporting system will be established to ensure that key resettlement activities are implemented on schedule. The PMO will also engage a domestic institute to conduct independent monitoring and evaluation of resettlement implementation and report progress semi-annually, to evaluate results through annual survey updates and reports for 2 years after completion of resettlement. Monitoring and evaluation reports will be submitted to Guiyang PMO and ADB for review and follow up action, if required.

* These figures will change since some indicative noncore subprojects will be removed from the project and some new noncore subprojects will be added to the project.

Indigenous Peoples EMDPs have been prepared for four of the core subprojects. About 200 ethnic minority persons in each of these four core subprojects will have their livelihoods affected by the Project, although the overall impact of the Project will be beneficial to the ethnic minority communities as a result of improved water supplies and consequential livelihood benefits. Ethnic minority villages will be specifically targeted for the provision of small water storage tanks, and special provisions will be made in resettlement plans, where construction activity has a serious impact on ethnic minority communities. An ethnic minorities development framework (EMDF) for the subsequent noncore subprojects has also been prepared. The PMO, assisted by the IAs, will be responsible for preparing the EMDPs for the noncore subprojects, as required, and monitoring the implementation of all EMDPs.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Primary stakeholders include rural and urban households using domestic water, irrigators, and water-using enterprises, as well as those affected by land acquisition and resettlement. Secondary stakeholders include village councils, and government units at township level and above, particularly water resources bureaus. The Project supports integrated water resources management (IWRM), which emphasizes involvement of stakeholders in improving governance and management of water resources.
Two rounds of public consultation roundtables were held during the preparation of feasibility studies reports (FSRs) for each subproject. For each subproject with irrigation, a further consultation will be held with irrigator representatives to participate in the preliminary and detailed design, form a water users association (WUA), and prepare for implementation of operation and maintenance where the WUA will have primary responsibility for irrigation management. Public consultation meetings and stakeholder panels will provide forums for participation in multipurpose reservoir management and river sub-basin planning. Where appropriate, community-managed modalities will be used for implementation of irrigation canal system (particularly tertiary canals) and small tank construction. The project preparatory technical assistance (TA) conducted urban and rural household surveys and interviews, including key informant interviews and female and male focus group discussions.
During Project Implementation The Project will support capacity development for public consultation and participatory planning targeting the project
management office (PMO) and local communities in the subproject area.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services More than Twenty-six person-months of international and 146 person-months of national consulting services will be required. ADB will finance consulting services for (i) project management support (one contract package), (ii) implementation of integrated water resources management (IWRM) and water demand management (WDM) (one contract package), (iii) independent dam safety panel members (three contract packages), and (iv) future requirements. For each of the two contract packages for project management support and implementation of IWRM and WDM, a team of consultants were recruited through an international firm, using quality- and cost-based selection method and inviting simplified technical proposals. Three national consultants for the independent dam safety panel were also recruited on individual basis. For consulting services for future requirements mentined in (iv) above, an external resettlement monitor/s and an environmental monitoring agency/ies will be recruited. Detailed design and engineering and construction supervision will be carried out using government counterpart funds by qualified local design institutes recruited by the local implementing agencies.
Procurement ADB-financed goods and services will be procured in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2007, as amended from time to time). Major contracts for equipment and materials valued at $1 million equivalent or more will be awarded through ADB's international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures. Smaller packages for equipment and materials valued at less than $1 million equivalent will be procured following national competitive bidding (NCB) procedures in accordance with the 1999 PRC's Tendering and Bidding Law, subject to modifications agreed with ADB. Civil works contracts estimated to cost $10 million equivalent or more will be carried out using ICB procedures, while those costing less than $10 million equivalent will be carried out using NCB procedures. Shopping will be allowed for goods and contracts valued at $100,000 equivalent or less and for civil works contracts valued at $200,000 or less. Small civil works contracts of $100,000 equivalent or less on subprojects involving small-scale reservoirs, irrigation system rehabilitation, soil and water conservation, and small water storage tanks may be carried out on a force account basis or through community participation, whenever practicable, to ensure sustainability and to achieve the Project's social objectives. International contractors may participate in bidding for contracts using NCB procedures.
