Progress Toward Outcome The project outcome is being achieved with resumption of livelihoods and reduced vulnerability to natural disasters in the affected areas.

Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs
Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

In the first half of 2011, the Project achieved much more than the projections for contract awards and disbursements. As of 31 August 2011, overall progress was 97% against the elapsed revised loan period of 93%. The cumulative contract awards and disbursements were $78.99 million and $77.31 million, equivalent to 98% and 96% of the net loan amount ($80.446 million), respectively. It is expected that the remaining ADB loan will be disbursed in the last quarter of 2011. Therefore, the achievements of 2011 will be much higher than the annual projections.

Project Implementation Progress:

(i) implementation progress of 67 subprojects was on track. However, implementation of the other 3 subprojects in Ha Giang and Nam Dinh provinces was delayed further from 2 to 3 months in comparison with the project implementation plan updated by the last review mission in February 2011;

(ii) 68 subprojects were completed;

(iii) the remaining 2 subprojects in Ha Giang Province are expected to be completed by the end of October 2011.

The main reasons of the delays of 3 subprojects were (i) heavy rains in 2011 for two subprojects in Ha Giang and Nam Dinh provinces; and (ii) adjustment of design required for one subproject in Ha Giang Province.

Geographical Location Ha Giang, Ha Tinh, Nam Dinh, Nghe An, Phu Tho, Phu Yen, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thanh Hoa and Yen Bai Provinces.

The consultants are also to assist CPMU and DARDs to ensure adherence to ADB's policies and guidelines during implementation.

All procurement financed under the ADB loan is being carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2007) and the Law on Bidding No. 61/2005/QH11 of the Social Republic of Vietnam (SRV) dated 29 November 2005. In case where the Laws on Bidding issued by the SRV are not in accordance with ADB's policies and procurement guidelines, ADB's guidelines shall prevail.
