Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects In compliance with the Safeguard Policy Statement (2009), appropriate environmental and social safeguards documents have been prepared. The Initial Poverty and Social Analysis (IPSA) is in the concept paper. The investment program also prepared a consultation and participation plan to involve key stakeholders for widespread, ongoing, and meaningful participation. A social and gender analysis will be carried out, based on which a gender action plan has been developed.
Involuntary Resettlement Nature of Social Issue: Temporary disruptions to income and temporary shifting during pipe rehabilitation works. There will be two new wastewater treatment plants to be built in tranche 3. This will potentially entail land acquisition and resettlement.
Indigenous Peoples Nature of Social Issue: No impacts are foreseen. All works will occur in Greater Colombo.
