Description ADB and the governments of Bangladesh, India, and Nepal are working together to develop and improve tourism sites and facilities in the three countries. The South Asia Tourism Infrastructure Development Project is improving the infrastructure around key tourist sites and cultural sites in the three countries, and expanding the air and road links that connect the various destinations. This includes upgrading airports; fixing roads; and cleaning up tourist sites with improved water supply, sanitation systems, and solid waste management. Visitor centers will be also be improved. The project is working to spread tourism to remote communities that are currently bypassed by the popular tourist markets. This work is benefiting about 2.4 million people in the three countries through increased income, jobs, improved health and local environmental conditions, and reduced travel times. About 270,000 people are benefiting from new job opportunities created by the project, and at least 5,000 others are enjoying expanded livelihood options.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Nepal, the north and northeastern states of India, and Bangladesh have vast and diverse cultural and natural resources. These areas contain many of the world's major Buddhist sites, which could make the area a world destination for nature and culture-based tourism. Tourism already plays a vital role in these areas, employing more than 13 million people in the three countries. Despite the importance of the tourism industry, it remains limited by poor infrastructure; weak protection and management of heritage sites and important tourist areas; and a lack of engagement by the communities surround tourist areas.
Impact The expected impact of the proposed Project is sustainable and inclusive economic growth and reduced poverty in the subregion.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Nature and culture based tourism destinations of subregional importance with (i) improved connectivity, (ii) better quality environment and visitor services; (iii) enhanced natural and cultural heritage; and (iv) stronger linkages with communities
Progress Toward Outcome Nepal Component: ADB's funding to GBA component was temporarily suspended from Dec 2017 due to very slow progress (30% against total contract period) with condition to resume funding upon substantial progress. Progress started to improve since then and ADB financing resumed. As of 30 August 2019, the progress has reached to about 78% with runway with linking taxiway works completed. Structural works of ITB, Admin Building, CFR building, Apron, Control Tower are all completed. Project extension of 12.5 months is approved to complete rest of the works of electrical, mechanical, terminal equipment installation and other related works. Contractor has been suggested by EA to generate IPCs to be cleared by consultant and client at the earliest and look for other options like credit line, injecting from its HQ etc to ease its cash flow crunch. Contract amendment is approved for additional advance payment.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The Project with additional financing has environmental safeguards categorization level B per ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement 2009, and Environmental Management Plan (EMP) was prepared for GBA and the Lumbini projects as part of the Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) report which is available in Supplementary Appendix to the RRP.
Involuntary Resettlement The Project is classified as category B for involuntary resettlement. An updated RP for the additional financing of the Project (available as a Supplementary Appendix to the RRP), was prepared for the GBA and outlines the objectives, policy principles, and procedures for land acquisition, compensation, and other assistance measure for affected persons (APs) The revised RP found that the expansion of the GBA requires land acquisition of 869 land plots belonging to 389 households. A summary poverty 56 reduction and social strategy (SPRSS) was prepared for the additional financing of the project. The poverty analysis classified the Project as a General Intervention which is expected to result in additional employment during construction and operation, and improved living conditions for local populations including the poor.The PMIU/CAAN will be responsible for ensuring the updating and implementing the RP and Social Strategy.
