Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects

The project is category A for environment. A consolidated environmental impact assessment (EIA) and an environmental management plan (EMP) have been prepared for the project roads. The EIA shows that anticipated environmental impacts and risks are modest and can be limited to an acceptable level through the implementation of the EMP and compliance with loan covenants. The EMP addresses potential impacts of the project outputs, sets out mitigation and monitoring measures, institutional arrangements, training requirements and budgets for implementation of the EMP. The budget for implementation of the EMP is 0.21% of the project budget. Capacity development and institutional strengthening are proposed to minimize environmental risks. Environmental complaints will be handled through a grievance redress mechanism established for the project. Discussion of key environmental impacts, risks and mitigation measures from the consolidated EIA are summarized in the EIA.

An external environmental supervision agency will be recruited by the PMO. This agency will be responsible for supervising the implementation of the environmental requirements. This agency should be in place before the start of the construction. Environmental monitoring agencies will also be recruited by the PMO. These agencies will be responsible for environmental monitoring according to the EMP requirements. These agencies should be in place before the start of the construction. The PMO will include one suitably qualified environmental staff to manage the aspects related to supervision and monitoring.

Involuntary Resettlement The project is category A for involuntary resettlement. Land acquisition and resettlement (LAR) impacts are attributable to the regional roads component. The two full resettlement plans for the regional roads address the LAR impacts. The estimated permanent land acquisition is 4,265.5 mu, including paddy land, non-irrigated farmland, forestry land, house plots, and other land. Permanent land acquisition will partially affect 3,998 households with 15,127 people. The total area of house and building demolition amounts to 83,155 square meters, involving residential house and simple structures, and will affect 600 households with 2,368 people. Overall, an estimated 17,495 persons from 4,598 rural households will be affected. Rural roads are unlikely to result in significant LAR impacts. To ensure LAR impacts are managed, a resettlement framewoek with two short sample resettlement plans was prepared. These documents adequately deal with LAR impacts. LAR costs are estimated at CNY358.54 million and include land compensation, house relocation, livelihood support, taxes, fess, and contingency funding. The PMG confirmed that adequate counterpart funding will be made available for LAR. Resettlement implementation will be monitored internally and externally. The PMO social safeguard unit will (i) coordinate internal supervision, (ii) report on plan implementation, and (iii) engage an independent external monitor for semiannual monitoring and reporting. Public consultations will continue throughout the project cycle. Capacity development and institutional strengthening will minimize LAR risks. A grievance redress mechanism will be established before LAR starts. Grievances will be resolved and documented in a timely manner.
Indigenous Peoples The project is category A for indigenous peoples (ethnic minorities). About 71% of the project beneficiaries represent ethnic minorities. The PMG prepared an ethnic minority development plan to ensure the project does not adversely impact ethnic minority communities and that ethnic minorities actively participate and benefit in a culturally appropriate way. Investigations found that improved access may increase the Wa and Lahu ethnic minorities' vulnerability to human and drug trafficking risks. Measures are incorporated in the ethnic minority development plan to complement the government's existing programs. The plan adequately deals with the identified risks. The plan is posted on the ADB website and has been disclosed to the ethnic minority communities in the project area.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Undertake stakeholder consultation through rapid appraisal methods and develop effective measures to address the issues.
During Project Implementation Within 2 months from the loan effectiveness, the PMO will commence disclosure of all key project-related information, including the scope, cost, and financial and institutional arrangements of the project, annual performance and sustainability report, and project progress such as procurement, contract award, and disbursement in a language culturally appropriate and easily understood by the project affected people. Consultation is an important aspect of the project. The PMTB will ensure that local communities affected by the project are consulted before each subproject implementation under the provisions of the EIA/EMP, RP, EMDP and GAP and after subproject implementation, to assess and remedy any residual concerns. Public awareness programs to communicate the objectives of the road safety, the community based road maintenance, HIV-AIDS, and the human, drug and wildlife trafficking project components will be coordinated by the PMO.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
Procurement

All procurement of goods and works where there is any ADB funding will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). International competitive bidding (ICB) procedures will be used for civil works contracts estimated to exceed $10 million, and goods contracts estimated to exceed $1 million. Contracts estimated at less than the ICB thresholds will be procured following national procedures in accordance with the PRC Tendering and Bidding Law (1999), subject to modifications as agreed with ADB and consigned in the NCB annex to the procurement plan (Appendix 1). Contracts for works estimated to cost less than the ICB threshold values above, but more than $200,000 and contracts for goods estimated to cost less than the ICB threshold values above, but more than $100,000 will be procured on the basis of national competitive bidding (NCB) procedures. Shopping will be used for contracts for procurement of works estimated at less than $200,000 and equipment estimated at less than $100,000.

Procurement under ICB procedures will use the single-stage one-envelope modality. Procurement shall use the latest ADB standard bidding documents which are found in ADB's website.

For procurement under NCB, the following provisions will apply (i) the advertisement may be limited to the national press, an official gazette or an open access website; (ii) bidding shall follow the standard bidding documents issued by MOF and approved by ADB; and (iii) bidding documents may be only in the Chinese language, and CNY may be used for the purpose of bidding and payment. Procurement under NCB and shopping will be subject to the provisions of the NCB annex of the procurement plan (Appendix 1).
