Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The proposed Decentralized Public Service and Financial Management Cluster Sector Development Program (DPSFM II) seeks to assist improved local public service delivery by supporting the development of sub-national administrations accountable to their citizens, through the implementation of the Royal Government of Cambodia's (the Government) Decentralization and De-concentration (D&D) reforms. The proposed second subprogram, for the DPSFM program will include a policy loan and a project loan. Under the proposed subprogram 2 (DPSFM I) will provide eligible rural Districts with grants for local investment projects. The project location is selected based on the criteria that no environmentally and culturally sensitive areas will be affected. There may be minimal and temporary environmental impacts from the construction of the proposed rural district offices, due to the small scale of the proposed buildings, and these will be minimized by appropriate mitigation measures adopted during construction. A site assessment (based on at least three potential sites), will be conducted to establish physical site conditions and vulnerability of proposed sites to natural disasters. Project design will also ensure application of appropriate building codes to ensure for safety and mitigation of disaster risk such as flood mitigation. The project will ensure compliance with appropriate national environment laws and building by-laws.
Involuntary Resettlement nder the proposed Decentralized Public Service and Financial Management Sector Development Program, Subprogram 2 (DPSFM I) the Sub-national Investment Fund will provide eligible rural Districts with grants for local investment projects. The project location is selected based on the criteria that there will be no private land acquisition and the available public land is free from any kind of encumbrances. This will be included as a loan covenant as part of the loan agreement. All land to be used will have clear titles and are free of all encumbrances. These lands are not occupied or productively used. The subproject selection criteria ensures that any proposed subproject with any involuntary resettlement will not be included as part of the project. Thus, no land acquisition will be involved and the project will not trigger any involuntary resettlement.
Indigenous Peoples The proposed Decentralized Public Service and Financial Management Cluster Sector Development Program (DPSFM II) seeks to assist improved local public service delivery by supporting the development of sub-national administrations accountable to their citizens, through the implementation of the Royal Government of Cambodia's (the Government) Decentralization and De-concentration (D&D) reforms. The proposed second subprogram, for the DPSFM program will include a policy loan and a project loan. Under the proposed subprogram 2 (DPSFM I) will provide eligible rural Districts with grants for local investment projects. The subproject selection criteria ensures that any proposed subproject with any indigenous peoples impacts will not be included as part of the project.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
