Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects

Each contractor prepared site-specific environmental management plans (EMPs) following the original EMP since the project covers three separate sections. The construcition supervision consultant monitored the EMP implementation. Bi-annual environmental monitoring reports were prepared and disclosed at ADB website.

The EA and ADB closely monitored and assessed any environment issue along the project roads during project implementation, through review missions, progress reports and bi-annual environment monitoring reports.

Involuntary Resettlement

The Project involved land acquisition and resettlement (LAR) along the project roads. The land acquisition and resettlement plan (LARP) was prepared and disclosed in 2010. Most of the LAR-related activities were completed and verified by an external monitor. The external monitoring report was also disclosed in 2012.

A supplemental LARP was prepared for the Kainar cloverleaf interchange. The works at this interchange were suspended until the supplemental LARP was implemented.

The EA and ADB closely monitored and assessed any LAR issue along the project roads during project implementation, through review missions, progress reports and bi-annual LAR monitoring reports.

Indigenous Peoples There was no impact on indigenous peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Committee of Roads, Ministry of Transport and Communications, (Implemention Agency) conducted consultations with raion akimats and project-affected peoples (APs) since 2007 for designing the project. Consultations were again conducted in May 2009 and March 2010 in preparing the land acquisition and resettlement plan (LARP). Brochures in Kazakh and Russian were distributed to APs, and LARPs were posted in both the ADB and Committee of Roads' websites.
During Project Implementation

Public consultations were held during implementation.

Grievance redress mechanism was set up in 2010. The establishment of Coordination Liaison Group (CLG) strengthened the grievance mechanism. A CLG Coordinator was engaged to monitor and report complaints, and facilitate resolution.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Recruitment of consulting services followed ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. A consulting firm for construction supervision was selected and engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a standard quality-cost ratio of 80:20, and full technical proposal.
Procurement Procurement of civil works financed by both ADB and JICA loans followed ADB's Procurement Guidelines. Three civil works contracts over $3 million were procured through international competitive bidding (ICB) procedure without pre-qualification of bidders. ADB's prior review procedures were followed.
