Description ADB and the Government of Nepal are working together to provide water supply and sanitation services to selected small towns in the country. The Third Small Town Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Project is providing the services to small towns with a population of 5,000 to 40,000 that show the potential for growth by having access to roads, power supply and telecommunications. This includes the upgrade or construction of water supply systems in up to 26 small towns, involving 1,450 kilometers of water supply pipelines; 78,000 household connections; and 26 water treatment systems with an estimated capacity of 50,000 cubic meters per day. The project is also providing about 20,300 household toilets with septic tanks, as well as provision of septic management facilities and equipment. Drainage systems and master plans are also being provided in towns with flooding risks. Training is being provided to help local water agencies modernize their operations and manage water rates, and to teach local communities public awareness on water conservation and public hygiene.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The urban population of Nepal is growing quickly. While this is an important engine for economic growth, it is also creating environmental hazards and rising urban poverty. Improved infrastructure and government services in cities are needed to address these issues. Most people in the country do not have access to piped water and those who do have it often suffer from intermittent service and poor maintenance. In areas without piped or other water systems, people use natural springs, spouts, or shallow groundwater wells and hand pumps. Many households in the country also lack modern sanitation facilities. This leads to open defecation that contaminates water sources and creates serious public health risks. Each year, more than 13,000 children under 5 years of age die of diarrhea-related diseases.
Impact Improved living conditions in project towns.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Inclusive, genderfocused, and sustainable WSS service delivery in project towns.
Progress Toward Outcome In overall, the project progress is satisfactory. The project is on track to achieve envisaged project outcome. As of 30 June 2018, the project elapsed time is 58.12% while the physical progress achieved is 70.8% and the financial progress is 56%.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. Improved WSS infrastructure.

2. Strengthened sector policy, regulatory and institutional capacity, and service delivery.

3. Improved project implementation.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

1. WSS construction packages have been awarded for 20 small towns including enchantment of 24 towns with a total pipeline length of 1873.59 kms installed and 94104 additional households connected as on 30 June 2018. Construction of 3 towns-- Charali of Jhapa, Mahendranagar of Sunsari, and Tikapur of Kailali is completed and are in operation phase whereas Sitalpati-Khalanga of Salyan is already with the Water Users and Sanitation Committee (WUSC) for operation and maintenance. Katahariya, Aanbukhaireni, Bidur, Dumre, Mirchaiya, Tamsariya, Katari, Suda, and Amargadhi towns are seriously lagging behind the original schedule. Similarly, Chhapnala Dumre, Bidur, Mirchaiya, Enhancement activities in 24 small towns are completed except for Fikkal (Ilam), and Khairenitar (Tanahun). In Fikkal, despite continuous efforts made by the Project, the source dispute has not yet been resolved.

In 12 towns 4114 OBA & 25 Public toilets on going.

2. A new institutional support and service advisory unit (ISSAU) under DWSS has been established. ISSAC ( consulting team) is on board & will be doing Preparation, adoption, and implementation of tariff guidelines for small towns; business plan for small towns, SEIU and WUA. Restructuring of the Town Development Fund (TDF) for capacity building has started with hired experts. Technical, financial and utility management training; Leadership training to female executive members of WUAs and Local Bodies are being conducted by RSDMCs.

3. Two RDSMCs hired & working for East & West and supporting RPMOs. DRTAC consulting team with individual experts are suppoting PMO at the central( 7 expert already on board & 2 experts to be hired). Individual consultants are hired for ISSAU unit. 6 individual experts are hired and working for TDF restructuring. Staff of central and regional PMOs are being involved in trainings as needed (procurement, contract management, and safeguards).

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is classified as category B for environmental safeguards. Thirty draft initial environmental examinations (IEEs) with environmental management plans (EMPs) have been prepared for the subprojects in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). They are publicly disclosed. They will be further updated during the detailed engineering design for each subproject and included in the tender documents. The draft IEEs for the sample subprojects concluded that no significant negative impacts are to be expected and that the project will yield a substantial net environmental benefit. Any impacts during construction and operation will be avoided or mitigated through measures outlined in the EMP, which will form part of all bidding documents. Measures used in the sample subprojects include (i) application of sufficient buffer zones between WSS facilities, and use of liners to prevent contamination of water sources; and (ii) locating subprojects outside sensitive areas. A draft environmental assessment and review framework is prepared to guide environmental assessment of future subprojects. During implementation, loan consultants will support the environmental officers of the project management office and its regional counterparts, and field-based EMP Monitors, in managing environmental impacts. Environmental reporting to ADB will be semiannual.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is categorized as B for involuntary resettlement. No permanent land acquisition or physical displacement was found to be required for the sample subprojects in Chandrauta, Charali, and Mahendranagar. The land required for the facilities is mostly provided through negotiated settlement, or is a donation by the community organizations or private landowners, or is government land. In Mahendranagar, one household headed by a woman will lose access to the land to construct subproject facilities. A draft resettlement plan is prepared to ensure restoration of the affected families livelihood. Thirteen safeguards due diligence reports are prepared for sample subprojects in Chandrauta and Charali to ensure that land donations comply with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) principles. No temporary impacts are expected from the construction of water supply pipes. The draft resettlement plans will be updated after detailed engineering design. A resettlement framework is prepared for the project to provide guidance in preparing future subprojects or in the event of unidentified involuntary resettlement impacts occurring during project implementation.
Indigenous Peoples The project is categorized as C for impacts on indigenous peoples based on the review of the sample subprojects. An indigenous peoples planning framework (IPPF) is prepared to provide guidance in the remaining project towns, and to ensure that livelihoods, culture, dignity, and territories are not compromised by project activities. Indigenous people plan (IPP) is prepared for the subproject following the IPPF when the impacts are significant or are not related to involuntary resettlement, otherwise specific actions for the affected indigenous community or people can be incorporated into the resettlement plan.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

Stakeholder participation and communication plan and strategy will be formulated at the initial design stage. The national social safeguard and resettlement specialists under the PPTA will be based in the field office for the sample subproject towns to ensure timely attention to issues concerning participation. For the remaining subproject towns, loan consultant will ensure the compliance with the stakeholder participation and communication plan and strategy by providing quarterly updates to ADB in the progress report.

The main stakeholders of the project are small town residents, local business communities, users' committees, government officials, civil society organizations and development partners. The project design is finalized through a process that involves continuous consultation between government and development partners, socio-economic surveys for the residents and business communities and communications with users' committees to determine feasibility of project design.

The project is to provide water supply services in the subproject area. Therefore, determination of the subproject area is important as not to exclude the poor, women-headed and minority households from access to improved services. Consultation with the poor and excluded can be engaged through focus group discussion, interviews and local meetings and can be separately arranged for separate focus groups to maintain appropriate level of sensitivity.

During Project Implementation The project is in line with ADB's water and urban operational plans, and its 2013-2017 country partnership strategy for Nepal, which states that ADB will support (i) improvements in inclusive access to and service levels of WSS in small towns, and (ii) institutional strengthening and capacity building of local governments, service providers, and the Town Development Fund.
