Description Incorporating lessons from Project 1, Project 2 for $60.16 million will fund a combination of structural and nonstructural measures in the three subproject areas (Palasbari-Gumi, Kaziranga, and Dibrugarh) along the Brahmaputra River in Assam. The structural measures will include: (i) 20 kilometers (km) of riverbank protection works with innovative technologies, combined with 5 km of pro-siltation measures; (ii) upgrade of 13 km of flood embankments; and (iii) construction of four sluice gates and one pumping station to improve drainage. Monitoring and adaptive maintenance of the infrastructure will also be included to cope with the highly dynamic morphological processes of the river. The nonstructural measures will continue the methodologies used under Project 1 and cover community involvement and community-based flood risk management activities.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The investment program tackles one of the critical development inhibitors of Assam: recurrent flooding from the Brahmaputra River (the world fourth largest river), exacerbated by unpredictable erosion of its riverbanks. Since the Great Assam Earthquake in 1950, the river has widened from about 6 to 9 km along its 650 km course in Assam. Natural hazards and remoteness have led to a slower development of the economy compared with the national average, while population growth and density are similar. Therefore, Assam faces high poverty and depends highly on agriculture.
Impact Economic vulnerability and social disruption caused by flood and riverbank erosion risks in Assam reduced.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Resilience to flood and riverbank erosion risks in selected flood-prone areas along the Brahmaputra River increased.
Progress Toward Outcome The loan was signed on 13 December 2018 and declared effective on 21 February 2019.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Project 2, in accordance with ADB SPS 2009, is categorized as "B" for environment, The Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) reports including Environmental Management and Monitoring Plans (EMMP) and updated Environmental Assessment and Review Framework (EARF) were prepared during project preparation. The Government through the EA is obliged to implement the recommendations from the IEE report.
Involuntary Resettlement The Project is classified as involuntary resettlement category A. The project intervention measures primarily include the bank protection works, renovation of existing flood embankments and strengthening and extension of existing dykes. A strip acquisition of land is needed to strengthen and extend the protection measures to cope with riverbank erosion. The majority of acquired lands are located along the eroding riverbank line, which would be lost without the project works. To implement the protection measures, project 2 will require 51.85 hectares of land (30.09 hectares of private and 12.75 hectares government land) in package 1 & 2 of Dibrugarh subproject, 15.54 hectares (10.46 hectares private and 5.08 hectares government land) in package 1 of Palasbari subproject, 15.09 hectares (3.76 hectares private and 11.33 hectares government land) in package 1 & 2 of Gumi subproject and 18.89 hectares (5.02 hectares private and 13.63 hectares government land) in package 3 of Kaziranga subproject. A resettlement framework was prepared for the project following central and state government laws and regulations, and ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). Based on the resettlement framework, Resettlement plans for these subprojects were prepared and disclosed.
Indigenous Peoples Project 2 has been categorized as B from Indigenous Peoples policy perspective. The project has prepared an indigenous peoples development framework following central and state government laws and regulations, and ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The Resettlement and Indigenous Peoples Plan has been prepared for the Kaziranga subproject.
