India: Rajasthan Urban Sector Development Investment Program - Tranche 2

Sovereign Project | 40031-033

Summary

Urban development for economic growth is a universal strategy of the Government of India as its 10th Five-Year Plan [FYP], 2002-2007, and 11th FYP, 2007-2012, show. The strategy is spearheaded by such urban development schemes as the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission and its subcomponent the Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns. Apart from supporting the Government's priority of planned development of urban centers in the country, the Investment Program is also aligned with the objectives of fostering economic growth and reducing poverty in Rajasthan.

Description

Urban development for economic growth is a universal strategy of the Government of India as its 10th Five-Year Plan [FYP], 2002-2007, and 11th FYP, 2007-2012, show. The strategy is spearheaded by such urban development schemes as the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission and its subcomponent the Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns. Apart from supporting the Government's priority of planned development of urban centers in the country, the Investment Program is also aligned with the objectives of fostering economic growth and reducing poverty in Rajasthan. The fast growing sectors in Rajasthan are mostly in urban areas, where productivity is 3.5 times higher than in rural areas.

The emphasis on urban development in Rajasthan, financial reforms and the passage of the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act in 1992, which laid the basis for decentralization in the urban sector, have made some improvements, but large inefficiencies in service delivery, low investment in wider service coverage, and poor maintenance persist.

The Investment Program and its road map are guided by the 10th FYP 2002-2007 and 11th FYP 2007-2012 of the Government of India. (See the Framework Financing Agreement for the Investment Program, Schedule 1) The Investment Program links capital investments to reforms for sustainable impact. It targets medium size towns with economic growth and tourism potentials, while maintaining regional balance.

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 The initial screening for impact on indigenous peoples (IPs) done for Project 1 showed no significant impact on IPs. An indigenous peoples' development framework (IPDF) was formulated for Project 1 to ensure equal sharing of Investment Program benefits if a future subproject is determined to have impact on IPs. However, none of the subproject works in Project 1 or 2 have triggered the Bank's policy on indigenous peoples (1998).
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Extensive consultations were undertaken with stakeholders, including beneficiary communities and affected households, NGOs, CBOs, elected representatives, urban local bodies, administrative departments, state government and central government. A participation strategy and a community action participation program (CAPP) have been prepared.
During Project Implementation The participation strategy and CAPP are implemented through an NGO in all project towns for mobilization, motivation, participation and awareness. The CAPP activities are reported on in the bi-annual social monitoring reports and approved by ADB.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services Consultants will be hired for the whole Investment Program according to ADB s Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time). A national consulting firm will be contracted to provide IPMCs for 443 person-months and three national firms to provide DSCs for 1,464 person-months, through ADB's quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) procedures under the aforementioned guidelines.
Procurement All goods and services to be financed by the loan and also for the Investment Program will be procured according to ADB s Procurement Guidelines (2007, as amended from time to time). Civil works contracts of at least $10 million will be procured through International competitive bidding; all other such contracts will be procured through national competitive bidding. As far as practicable, goods will be procured in packages of more than $1 million each to be suitable for international competitive bidding or limited international bidding. Minor goods costing less than $100,000 will be purchased through shopping.
