|Description of Project Outputs|
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||Loan implementation consultants started project management support and capacity development work. Resettlement plan was updated and uploaded on ADB website. Detailed design for outputs 1 and 2 are under preparation. Some sections of subcomponents of outputs 1 and 2 were already implemented following the design at loan negotiations stage, especially the environmentally sustainable sponge city design for some of the river rehabilitation and wetlands restoration subcomponents.|
|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, two of the project rivers. Mitigating measures to reduce risk to fish habitat are described in the EMP. Most impacts from construction of the rural -urban road will be localized, short-term, and can be effectively mitigated as described in the EMP. An institutional strengthening and capacity development program is defined in the EMP to ensure PMG''s capacity to manage and monitor environmental impacts and risks.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||A total of about 4,000 households with about 17,000 persons are expected to be affected by the project, out of which about 1,000 households with about 4,300 persons will lose more than 10% of their productive assets and/or will be physically displaced. Nearly 325 households with about 400 persons are vulnerable. 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.|
|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 executing agency and its PMO and the implementing agencies and their PIUs are implementing a grievance redress mechanism as described in the project administration manual, with support from the loan implementation consultants, and will undertake consultations and monitoring 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. External monitors are being engaged for environmental and social and resettlement plan implementation monitoring and evaluation.|
|Consulting Services||All consultants will be recruited in accordance with ADB''s Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).|
|Procurement||All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).|
