Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The project is category A for environment. An environmental impact assessment (EIA) and an environmental management plan (EMP) have been prepared for the project roads and the waterway. These documents comply with the PRC's regulatory requirements and ADB Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and were disclosed on the ADB website on 31 July 2013. Public consultation was carried to inform the design and EIA processes, and will continue through project implementation. The EIA showed that only modest environmental impacts and risks can be expected, and that they can be limited to an acceptable level through the implementation of the EMP and compliance with loan covenants.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is category A for involuntary resettlement. It will result in acquisition of 285.1 hectares of land, including 251.7 hectares of collective land and 33.5 hectares of state-owned land. Land acquisition and house demolition will affect 4,408 households and 17,342 people overall. Of this total, 877 households and 3,605 people will be affected by house demolition. The project will also result in relocation of 33 enterprises, affecting 111 persons. A total of 2,496 households with 9,584 people will be affected by physical displacement or loss of more than 10% of their land and other productive assets.
Indigenous Peoples The project is classified as category C for indigenous peoples. Han Chinese, the PRC's majority ethnic group, make up 99% of Anhui Province's population.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Consultations have been organized during project preparation stage for project scope, environmental issue, and involuntary resettlement.
