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.
