Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Safeguard due diligence have be conducted according to ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). An environmental review assessment framework has been prepared for the investment program. For individual tranches, resettlement plans, initial environment examination and environment management plan will be prepared.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

Stakeholder participation and consultation include workshops, community mobilization, and consultation conducted for discussion on the potential needs of the community, social-related issues such as gender, HIV/AIDs, human trafficking, child labor, environment and social safeguard issues.

Active CSOs are present in the project area. CSOs will be identified and engaged as appropriate for livelihood restoration activities outlined in the resettlement planning documents.

Poor and excluded affected persons impacted by land acquisition are consulted and surveyed. Additional assistance and provisions such as livelihood rehabilitation will be outlined in Resettlement Plans.

During Project Implementation The EA will be required to ensure that women and men are given equal opportunities for employment on the project. Contractors will be required to ensure equal payment for equal work. A specific clause will be included in the bidding documents of the civil works. Monitoring mechanisms will be developed to monitor these actions in the due course. Potential practical and implementable gender-specific initiatives will be explored during due diligence.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Consultants will be recruited, as firms or individuals, to support the project implementation and capacity development in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).

Consulting firms and individual consultants will be selected to assist the project implementation unit in project management, contract administration, and capacity development programs. Contractors will be selected for civil works involved in rural road development, national road rehabilitation, and road network maintenance and operation.

To expedite project implementation, advance contracting and retroactive financing will be used to procure the civil works and consulting services. Procurement of civil works and equipment will be carried out in accordance with ADB Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). The works contracts will adopt the international or national competitive bidding procedure, using the output and performance-based road contract mode. The bidding and contract documents will use the one developed by the World Bank, with modification to comply with ADB requirements.
