Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Most adverse environmental impacts are associated with construction and can be mitigated. IEEs include environmental management plans, which identify adequate mitigation measures.
Involuntary Resettlement Significant resettlement impacts are envisioned as part of one subproject (Elevated Expressway Corridor Flyover from Jehangir to Rambagh-Natipora in Srinagar), for which a resettlement plan (RP) was reviewed, cleared, and disclosed by ADB. Other subprojects in Tranche 2 will not have significant resettlement impacts and are designed to minimize land acquisition and resettlement impacts.
Indigenous Peoples No indigenous peoples were identified in project 2 sites and these are supported by census data and confirmed through focus group discussions and census surveys subproject preparation.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Public consultation has been conducted to understand the local issues and public views regarding the overall project and possible impacts, which had made inputs to develop (i) consultation and participation plan (CPP), (ii) stakeholder communications strategy (SCS), (iii) gender action plan (GAP), and (iv) resettlement plan (RP). As for a specific subproject, Srinagar flyover construction, comprehensive and a series of public consultation and dissemination efforts have been carried out and the outputs have been incorporated into the resettlement plan.
During Project Implementation The consultation and participation plan (CPP) for the duration of the project is prepared. Information flows will focus on (i) sharing project information (scope and progress) with decision makers, responsible agencies, consultants and contractors; (ii) explain the project and resolve concerns raised by affected persons and (iii) involve beneficiaries in field-level monitoring activities. They provide information on (i) who is responsible to ensure the actions and strategy are implemented, and (ii) what resources are required to implement the plan and strategy.

Business Opportunities

These consultants were engaged in 2008 in accordance with the ADB s Guidelines on the Use of Consultants.
Procurement All procurement of goods and works are being undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (as amended from time to time).
