Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects A project environmental impact assessment, including an environmental management plan (EMP), was prepared and disclosed in May 2015 in compliance with ADB''s policies and requirements, including ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The environmental impact assessment incorporates findings from a biodiversity and habitat survey and fishery resource impact assessments in the Pingshui and Yuan rivers. Potential impacts of the planned river rehabilitation include significant earthwork and sediment dredging, and damage to in-channel habitats potentially impacting the two fish protection zones. The proposed rural -urban road will involve cut and fill along the road corridor, which will likely cause soil erosion, dust, construction noise and vibration, and community and occupational health and safety risks. Most impacts will be localized, short-term, and can be effectively mitigated through the application of good construction and housekeeping practices defined in the EMP. An institutional strengthening and capacity building program is defined in the EMP to ensure PMG''s capacity to manage and monitor environmental impacts and risks.
Involuntary Resettlement The project will acquire 171.02 ha of land, of which 115.61 ha is farmland, affecting 3,379 households with 13,672 persons. There will be temporary occupation of 122.53 ha of land. About 262 households and 1,022 persons will lose 51,636.57 square meters of residential housing and 3,309 square meters of small shops. A total of 4,207 households with 17,045 persons will be affected by the project, out of which 1,059 households with 4,327 persons will lose more than 10% of their productive assets and/or will be physically displaced. Nearly 325 households with 395 persons are vulnerable and 13 belong to ethnic groups. Five resettlement plans consistent with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement were prepared and disclosed on the ADB website. Compensation for lost assets and allowances will be at replacement costs and will be paid to affected persons prior to displacement. Resettlement information booklets were disclosed to the community, village offices, and to affected persons in the local language in April 2015. Each project implementation unit will have at least one fulltime resettlement staff member to carry out internal monitoring and supervision. The implementing agencies possess good capacity to implement land acquisition and resettlement. Training on ADB''s involuntary resettlement policy and procedures will be provided to ensure proper implementation. A grievance redress mechanism will be established and an independent agency will be engaged to conduct semiannual external monitoring and evaluation.
Indigenous Peoples There is no specific ethnic minority community or group that lives separately and no adverse impact is expected that would trigger ADB policy.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Extensive consultation with stakeholders was performed during the PPTA stage. A socioeconomic survey, stakeholder workshop, focus group discussions, and key informant interviews were conducted under the poverty and social assessment, including consultation for the resettlement, social, and environment safeguards.
During Project Implementation The PMO and PIUs, with support of consultants and external monitors, will undertake consultations with key stakeholders. The PMO will ensure local stakeholders are consulted, that information on the project is disseminated, and that questions and complaints are addressed quickly and effectively.
