Project Outcome

Description of Outcome
Progress Toward Outcome Four contract packages awarded (3 civil works and 1 goods contract) and are currently implemented. ADB in July 2015 issued its approval for the major civil works contract package for Goroka Airport Upgrade and new Terminal Building. Contract was signed on 07 October 2015 and construction is now up to 10 percent physical progress. A goods package for CNS/ATM was tendered and ADB approval issued in February 2016. Contract was also signed in February 2016. Recently, ADB issued its approval for Momote Airport Fencing in February 2016. Contract signing expected in April 2016.

Geographical Location

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Proposed pavement improvements and security fencing works will not result in any significant adverse environmental impact. All potential environmental impacts can be adequately mitigated and managed, and will be monitored. An environment assessment and review framework prepared for the Multitranche Financing Facility and an Initial Environmental Examination, incorporating an environmental management and monitoring plan, has been prepared for all the subproject sites. The assessment procedures comply with ADB Safeguards Policy Statement requirements (2009). The project is classified category B for environment.
Involuntary Resettlement Tranche 2 is not expected to involve land acquisition and resettlement impacts, as all subproject works will be undertaken within NAC or state owned land and the engineering design has been revised, such as realignment of fencing at Buka, to avoid resettlement impacts. In case any unanticipated impacts are identified during construction, a resettlement plan will be prepared according to the resettlement framework. The project's involuntary resettlement classification is category C.
Indigenous Peoples Tranche 2 works will be undertaken within existing airport locations on NAC or state owned land without any impacts on customary land and are not expected to have adverse impacts on or target any distinct or vulnerable ethnic or tribal group. All subprojects will be implemented in a culturally appropriate and participatory manner. The project's classification is category C on indigenous peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Consultations were held with provincial administration in subproject sites. Since there are no village communities around the immediate proximity of subproject sites and since all civil works will be carried out within NAC owned land, consultations were not considered beyond the airport perimeter area.
During Project Implementation

NAC shall ensure that projects financed under the Facility do not have any indigenous people's impacts within the meaning of the Safeguard Policy Statement. In the event that project(s) do have any such impacts, NAC shall take all steps required to ensure that the project complies with the applicable laws and regulations of Papua New Guinea and the SPS.

Tranche 2 works will be undertaken within existing airport locations on NAC or state owned land without any impact on customary land and are not expected to have adverse impacts on or target any distinct or vulnerable ethnic or tribal group. All subprojects will be implemented in a culturally appropriate and participatory manner. The project's classification is category C on indigenous peoples.

NAC will maintain a Social and Lands officer (36 person months) and engage a Social Safeguards and Gender Specialist (international consultant, 8 person months) to assist NAC to manage social safeguard aspects. They will (i) update the due diligence reports ensuring that subprojects do not involve social issues during construction, (ii) prepare safeguard plans, if any unanticipated impacts identified; (iii) develop and implement consultation, participation and communication plan or strategies; (iv) assist in setting up and managing grievance redress mechanism; (v) identify, assess and mitigate any adverse social impacts; and (vi) prepare monitoring reports and assist in disclosure of relevant documents in line with ADB requirements.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The government will form a project steering committee to oversee and monitor project implementation, including policy guidance and coordination, technical design and tendering, progress reports and audited accounts. The EA will be responsible for design, supervision of civil works, and day-to-day implementation, financial management, and monitoring and evaluation. To complement EA's limited technical staff resources, consultants will be retained for these services, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The PIU will be integrated in the EA's management structure with NAC professional and technical staff as counterparts.
Procurement NAC will procure civil works, goods and equipment under a number of procurement packages through international and national competitive bidding and shopping in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time).
