Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Environmental category for the project is B given the nature of the proposed project (i.e. improvement of existing roads, no widening of roads, etc.). Some of project roads in Battambang and Pursat are located in the transition zone of Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve (TLSBR). In addition, some activities under the Connectivity Improvements for Mekong River Islands Output, including the construction of 11 jetties, will take place near the Mekong River. Although none of the project activities are expected to have serious impacts on nearby areas (TLSBR and Mekong River), the Ministry of Rural Development has obtained no objection on the project implementation from relevant authorities (the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology, and the Cambodian Mekong River Commission). The initial environmental examination, including Mekong River Island Connectivity Output and its environmental assessment and review framework, has been prepared in compliance with the ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement.
Involuntary Resettlement Since none of the project roads will be widened, resettlement impacts are expected to be minimal. Therefore, project has been classified as category C for resettlement under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS). Nevertheless, a resettlement framework has been prepared in compliance with SPS to mitigate involuntary resettlement impacts in case they arise, due to road widening, during project implementation.
Indigenous Peoples Since the social assessments in the project areas during project design did not indicate the presence of indigenous peoples, the project is categorized as category C for indigenous peoples under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services All consultants financed by ADB will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. Consulting services financed by Export-Import Bank of Korea and Nordic Development Fund will follow their own consultant selection and recruitment procedures.
Procurement International competitive bidding procedures will be used for civil works contracts estimated to cost $1,000,000 or more. National competitive bidding for goods will be adopted for contracts estimated between $100,000 and $500,000. Shopping will be used for contracts for procurement of works and equipment worthless than $100,000.
