Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The project is classified category B and uses a sector-like approach to environmental management. An environmental assessment and review framework and initial environmental examinations (IEEs) have been prepared for both subprojects. Both the environmental assessment and review framework and the IEEs will be used to guide development of future subproject IEEs. The project's environmental impacts are minor, sitespecific, and temporary. They include (i) disturbance from dust arising from loading, unloading, and transportation of construction materials; (ii) noise; (iii) erosion and sedimentation from exposed surfaces during construction that may affect water courses; (iv) risks from the use and disposal of hazardous materials such as used fuel and lubricants; and (v) increased risk of accidents from increased vehicle movements. Mitigation measures have been incorporated in the subprojects, as outlined in the environmental management plans. The PMU will implement the environmental management plans and employ a full-time national environment specialist and a part-time international specialist to monitor and report on progress.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is classified category B. The upgrading of roads will involve widening and will require additional land. The government has endorsed a resettlement framework, which outlines the principles and procedures to purchase land through negotiation. All resettlement actions will be in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The design of the roads will avoid resettlement impacts wherever possible, and minimize impacts by exploring alternatives. The resettlement framework and resettlement plans prepared in accordance with the resettlement framework will aim to enhance, or at least restore, the living standards of affected persons; and improve the living standards of the poor and vulnerable affected persons.
Indigenous Peoples The project is classified category C. No significant difference in social or cultural identity exists among communities that will be served by the upgraded roads. No ethnic minority groups are expected to be affected by the project.
