Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Gender equity
Description ADB has supported the government in improving water supply and sanitation services in 70 of the 176 small towns in Nepal through three small towns projects introducing continuous water supply, meeting national quality standards, and providing universal household connections with subsidized connections and affordable supply for poor and vulnerable households.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Urban Water Supply and Sanitation (Sector) Project will support the ongoing efforts of the Government of Nepal to provide better access to water supply and sanitation services to the growing urban population. Building upon the successful implementation of earlier interventions, the project will fund physical investments in water supply and sanitation infrastructure and non-physical investments to improve service regulation, governance, and user participation in selected municipalities, previously referred to as small towns.
Impact Quality of life for urban population, including the poor and marginalized, improved through the provision of sustainable water supply and sanitation services
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Inclusive and sustainable access to water supply and sanitation services in project municipalities achieved
Progress Toward Outcome 19 packages (15 water supply, 2 storm water drainage, one decentralized waste water treatment systems, and 1 installation of SCADA system) and works are in progress. Four civil works packages are under bidding process. The IFB of remaining two civil works packages are planned to be published within 2021. WSS facilities are being executed and water tariffs being agreed. As of September 2021, overall physical progress of the project is 42.94%. The project also supports the strengthening the institutional and community capacities including mainstreaming gender equality and social inclusion in the project activities and has a provision to support the poor and vulnerable (including women headed households) people of the project municipalities. This includes subsidized piped water supply connection and output-based aid (OBA) provision for sanitation infrastructure. Although being behind the schedule, the overall Project progress is assessed to be satisfactory.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project management office (PMO) prepared an environmental assessment review framework (EARF) in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and applicable government environmental regulation to provide guidance on subproject selection, screening and categorization, information disclosure and consultation, assessment, planning, institutional arrangement, and processes to be followed during project implementation. Five sample subprojects were appraised, and initial environmental examination (IEE) reports were prepared in line with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and EARF. The IEEs also include an environmental compliance audit of existing facilities that will be rehabilitated or expanded under the project. The sample IEEs and information on project municipalities indicate that there are no ecologically sensitive areas, planned infrastructure will only require small footprints, and the potential impacts are site-specific--few if any of them are irreversible and can in most cases be readily mitigated and minimized by applying proven mitigation measures and environmentally sound engineering and construction practices consistent with international good practices. Stakeholders were involved through meaningful consultations and views expressed were fed into IEEs and subprojects. The consultation process will be continued during project implementation to ensure that stakeholders are fully engaged. The environmental management plans (EMPs) will form part of the bid and contract documents. The IEEs were prepared with site-specific EMPs and monitoring program, submitted to ADB, and no works will start until final IEEs are reviewed and approved by ADB. The EARF and IEEs were disclosed on ADB and project websites and to affected people. A grievance redress mechanism is included in the project administration manual. Adequate consulting support is included in the project to ensure satisfactory environmental compliance. PMO will report to ADB on EMP implementation twice a year.
Involuntary Resettlement To guide subproject preparation, the PMO prepared a resettlement framework in line with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and the Government of Nepal's policies, and a sample resettlement plan and four sample due diligence reports. Private land acquisition for sample subprojects is not needed. The resettlement plan, prepared for a sample WSS subproject, assesses the impact on common property resources and provides suitable mitigation measures The DWSS has some experience in implementing and monitoring category B subprojects for involuntary resettlement safeguards under ADB-funded projects. The grievance redress mechanism will address issues and grievances in a timely and effective manner. The PMO will submit semiannual social safeguard monitoring reports to ADB and will be supported by loan consultants in monitoring compliance with safeguards. No subprojects rated category A for involuntary resettlement will be included.
Indigenous Peoples To guide subproject preparation, the PMO prepared an indigenous peoples planning framework in line with ADB's Safeguard Policy statement and the Government of Nepal's policies. Field visits confirmed the presence of indigenous peoples' groups in one of the sample municipalities, who will be included in project benefits. Indigenous peoples' groups who are traditional users of surface water sources proposed for a municipal water supply system are also identified, and a sample indigenous peoples plan was prepared. Previous ADB projects implemented by the DWSS were category C for indigenous peoples' safeguards. Capacity building of PMO staff as well as training of municipal officials and WUAs on indigenous peoples' safeguards, and refresher training sessions on involuntary resettlement will be required. Regional PMOs, municipalities, and WUAs will need capacity support from the social safeguards consultant to asses in the implementation of resettlement and indigenous peoples plans. No subprojects rated category A for indigenous peoples will be included.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design PMO will submit to ADB a stakeholder communication strategy after one month of the project effectiveness. The strategy will follow ADB's Public Communications Policy 2011. PMO will ensure that all communication is in language understood by the specific audience. The stakeholder communication strategy will be based on a stakeholder analysis and will incorporate the following components:(i) Compilation of stakeholder communication activities undertaken so far, including gender-disaggregated data on participants, minutes of meetings and photographs;(ii) role of the PMO, RPMOs in coordinating and communicating with government of institutional stakeholders;(iii) public communication plan for disseminating project related information (a) to the general public, particularly those who may be impacted by the proposed projects; (b) to indigenous peoples' groups who may be benefited or affected by the proposed projects; (c) to communities facing loss of common property resources; and (d) to vulnerable groups, particularly regarding the project's social inclusion policy and how to avail benefits under the project;(iv) disclosure of social safeguards and environment monitoring reports and any updated resettlement plans and IEEs in the ADB and PMO websites and to affected persons and local non-government organizations/community-based organizations, in local language; and(v) other communication arrangements at the local community level including through notice boards, newspapers, local radio stations and cable television, etc.
During Project Implementation PMO has already submitted to ADB a stakeholder communication strategy, and is being implemented.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services PMO will recruit four consulting firms: one to support project management and quality assurance, and three for design, supervision, and management targeting specific geographical regions. Recruitment will be through quality- and cost-based (90:10) selection to ensure engagement of highly qualified consultants. Individual consultants will be engaged to support the TDF and the DWSS.
Procurement Procurement (including consulting services) to be financed by the loan will follow ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and Procurement Regulations for ADB Borrowers (2017, as amended from time to time).
