Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Environment impacts will not be significant since the project will only involve rehabilitation, tertiary and on-farm irrigation system development. Indigenous peoples concerns will be confirmed and addressed. The PPTA will conduct due diligence and prepare safeguard requirements compliant with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009).
Involuntary Resettlement There is a probability of land acquisition in irrigation infrastructure rehabilitation and development (including tertiary canals, land consolidation, rural roads and agricultural processing facilities, if any) in subprojects. The PPTA will identify the impacts of resettlement on civil works and prepare resettlement plan.
Indigenous Peoples The PPTA will identify whether indigenous people affected will be or not in each subproject.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design During implementation of the PPTA, consultation with the beneficiaries on the project design in participatory manner will be condulcted.
During Project Implementation

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

All consulting services required for capacity development and project management support will be engaged in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The PPTA consultants will be recruited from a firm selected using QCBS method at a ratio of 80:20 based on full technical proposals.

A total of 94.0 person-months (pm) of consulting services (consisting of 24.0 pm of international and 70.0 pm of national input) will be required for project preparation. The consulting services will be recruited from a firm selected using QCBS method at a ratio of 80:20 based on a full technical proposal. The 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 to be financed under the loan will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). Very few qualified local consultants and private contractors presently exist in Myanmar to design and implement irrigation facilities as MOAI and other government agencies traditionally construct civil works using force account procedures based on standard designs and technical specifications. Procurement methods will be confirmed during the PPTA, especially the use of force account, and community based participation procedures.
