Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects

The project is assessed as category B for environment.

The draft initial environmental examination, which has been prepared based on ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement, has been reviewed by ADB and is being revised. The approved initial environmental examination will be disclosed on the ADB website upon receipt from Hanoi People's Committee.

No natural ecosystems exist in the project area, which is heavily populated. Land use is predominantly commercial or residential. The project will not involve major civil works and is not likely to result to significant adverse environmental impacts during construction and operation. Public consultations with affected people were conducted during preparation of the initial environmental examination, in compliance with ADB's information disclosure and consultation requirements. Department of Transport will ensure that the environmental management plan is included in all bid documents.

Involuntary Resettlement

The project is assessed as category C for involuntary resettlement.

With respect to involuntary resettlement, land will be provided unencumbered to the project adjoining Ngoc Khanh station in 2018. This land is to be acquired under the ADB financed Metro Line 3 project in full compliance with ADB Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) to be used as a construction work area by a contractor under the aforementioned project.

Resettlement due diligence of the proposed project sites has indicated there will be no other involuntary resettlement impacts

Indigenous Peoples The project is assessed as Category C for indigenous peoples safeguards.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

During the PPTA at each district extensive consultations were conducted with stakeholders, including key informant interviews and focus group discussions with disability groups and student. There were several key stakeholder consultations with members of the Disabled Community who strongly endorsed the Metro Project for its members. A round table was held with the disabled community and the engineers from the PPTA team noted all the engineering concerns raised.

A communication and participation plan will be prepared for the project to ensure that stakeholders' views will be taken in to consideration in the project detailed design to promote universal access features and usability. Training for transport providers will be carried out in the future project to improve their awareness of disability and the other issues related to the safety and security. IEC materials such as posters and pocket guidelines will be developed for the training courses as well as for transport users in the project area. Consultation and modification of awareness training materials will be done during the next phase of the project.

During Project Implementation ADB mobilized a communication expert in 2015 to (i) ensure that people affected by resettlement, environmental impacts, and so on are timely receive reliable information, (ii) ensure that interested partners and public are aware of and receive project information, and (iii) raise public awareness and foster demand of metro use in future. The expert conducted consultation with government officials and stakeholders and focus group meetings with various groups (e.g., students, senior citizens) to improve project's communication strategy. The strategy will be used for communication with stakeholders before/during/after civil works.
