Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The safeguard category for the project is B for environment. An initial environmental examination report with an environmental management plan and implementation budget has been prepared in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and will be disclosed on ADB's website. No component of any of the three appraised subprojects is located in an environmentally sensitive or protected area, and adherence to good international construction practices will mitigate any potential impacts during construction. The main impact during preconstruction will be the clearing of unexploded ordnance in the project's sub-transmission corridor, and before civil works begin, a certified unexploded ordnance clearance certificate needs to be obtained.
Involuntary Resettlement The safeguard category for the project is B for involuntary resettlement. A resettlement plan with an estimated compensation budget has been prepared in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and will be disclosed on ADB's website. No physical relocation will be required and, in this case, the term resettlement relates to limited acquisition of livelihood trees and crops. Potential impacts will be limited to the installation of concrete poles using about 0.2 square meters of land and the stringing of conductors requiring the trimming of some tree branches. Some trees may need to be removed in a few villages and market areas. The estimated impact of tree removal is 1 tree per 2 km, including productive trees such as mango, palm, coconut, and tamarind.
Indigenous Peoples The safeguard category for the project is C for indigenous peoples.
