Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects No significant environmental impacts are expected. Impacts are readily mitigated through proper facility siting, design and good construction practices. These are identified in the subproject-specific initial environmental examinations (IEEs) and environmental monitoring plans (EMPs), which are prepared in accordance with ADB's Environment Policy (2002). The investment program management unit is responsible for the coordination and implementation of the environmental and health and safety activities. Bi-annual monitoring environmental reports are prepared and approved by ADB.
Involuntary Resettlement The investment program is designed to minimize land acquisition and resettlement impact. Impacts are limited to minor land acquisition and temporary resettlement during construction. A resettlement framework has been prepared to guide the implementation of subprojects and short resettlement plans have been prepared, whereby adhering to ADB's policy on involuntary resettlement (1995). The investment program management unit is responsible for the coordination and implementation of all social and resettlement activities. Bi-annual social monitoring reports are prepared and approved by ADB.
Indigenous Peoples In the three project towns, initial screening for impact on indigenous peoples (IPs) showed no significant impact on IPs. An indigenous peoples' development framework (IPDF) has been formulated to ensure equal sharing of Investment Program benefits, if a future subproject is determined to have impact on IPs. The Bank's policy on indigenous peoples (1998) is leading.
