The North Karnataka Urban Sector Investment Program will help GoK rehabilitate existing urban infrastructure facilities and construct new ones in ULBs of North Karnataka. The Investment Program will assist GoK in meeting its urban sector investment plan and providing water supply systems, sewerage systems, drainage, and urban road resurfacing and junction improvements. The living environment in slums will be improved with the provision of basic services. Firefighting capacity improvements, tourism infrastructure, and lake rehabilitation are also included. The Investment Program will introduce private sector participation (PSP) in selected subsectors in selected ULBs and support ongoing institutional reforms and training for ULB staff currently being conducted by GoK under the Nirmal Nagar Program (NNP).

|Description||The North Karnataka Urban Sector Investment Program will help GoK rehabilitate existing urban infrastructure facilities and construct new ones in ULBs of North Karnataka. The Investment Program will assist GoK in meeting its urban sector investment plan and providing water supply systems, sewerage systems, drainage, and urban road resurfacing and junction improvements.

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The proposed Investment Program is highly relevant to ADB's country strategy and program (CSP) for India, which rests on the three pillars of: (i) pro-poor growth for reducing income poverty; (ii) social development for reducing human poverty; and (iii) good governance for leveraging and maximizing the impact of development.|
|Impact||Improved quality of life in program ULBs and increased economic growth relative to the whole state.|
|Description of Outcome||Improved access to better urban services in 8 ULB.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||Execution of civil works is still ongoing and the target outcomes for sanitation, water supply and service delivery have not yet been achieved.|
|Description of Project Outputs||
Upgraded urban infrastructure.
Strengthened municipal management and project implementation capacity.
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||
Upgraded Urban Infrastructure:
(i) Sanitation infrastructure, including sewage management improvements in six ULBs: Works commenced. All contract packages awarded in which physical progress ranges from 30-100%. 200 km sewer laid/rehabilitated, physical works for construction of new drains in progress;
(ii) Water supply infrastructure, including rehabilitation and expansion of potable water system in two ULBs: All contract packages awarded in which physical progress ranges from 43-95%. 88.5 km new pipe network built/rehabilitated; and
(iii) Non-municipal infrastructure, including improvements in urban water bodies in one ULB (completed), and complementing tourism infrastructure for two heritage sites in one ULB (physical works in advanced stage of completion.)
Strengthened municipal management and investment program management capacity:
(i) Institutional development:
Property & utility mapping: All packages awarded and are under implementation.
Heritage planning cell: not yet started (dropped from the current tranche)
Conduction municipal financing assessment: not yet started
Developing capacity for performance-based contract management & monitoring: not yet stared
Gender sensitization: ongoing
(ii) Investment program assistance: Ongoing
|Geographical Location||North Karnataka|
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||These IEEs show that net environmental benefits are positive and large including: (i) improved urban environment from sewerage subprojects leading to improved public health; (ii) reduced flooding through drainage improvements; and (iii) improved water quality through lake development schemes. Investments around heritage sites will support tourism through improved management, parking, and sanitation. Any impacts during construction and operation will not be significant as larger facilities will be built in low density and non-sensitive areas. The environmental management plans contained within the IEEs will form part of the bidding and contract documents.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||It is designed to minimize land acquisition and resettlement impacts and facilities will be accommodated mostly within government-owned land or the public right-of-way. The proposed sewerage treatment plant in Yadgir requires 22.25 acres of private agricultural land affecting seven households (37 affected persons). The implementation of the resettlement plan will be monitored by the PMU and program implementation unit with assistance from the supervision consultant and NGO. Safeguard reporting from the PMU to ADB will be done on a semi-annual basis. The mission confirmed the voluntary land resettlement for the Sindhanur impounding reservoir. KUIDFC substantiated this by evidencing: (i) open negotiations with the land owners, and (ii) alternative project location options in the event negotiations had not succeeded. The mission visited the site and confirmed that the land was vacant dry land. For Gadag, where the section of the raw water transmission pipeline is to be laid in the shoulder of the State Highway 45, no works will begin in relevant sections until compensation has been paid as per ADB's approved resettlement plan for Loan 2705.|
