Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
|Environmental Aspects||No significant environmental impacts are expected. Impacts are readily mitigated through proper facility siting, design, and good construction practices. These are identified in the IEEs and EMPs prepared in compliance with the agreed EARF and SPS, 2009.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||Resettlement Plans were prepared for six sample subprojects in accordance with the agreed Resettlement Framework consistent with SPS, 2009. Impacts are limited to minor land acquisition, and are temporary due to construction. Minor or small land acquisition is anticipated in the subprojects and resettlements are temporary in nature. All Resettlement Plans comply with the Resettlement Framework and are reviewed by ADB.|
|Indigenous Peoples||The project focuses on improvements within urban areas in Rajasthan. Indigenous people are not located in these areas, thus, there are no impacts to indigenous people.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||Extensive consultations were undertaken with stakeholders, including beneficiary communities and affected households, NGOs, CBOs, SHGs, elected representatives, ULBs, administrative departments, state governments, and the central government. Consultation workshops, meetings, FGDs, and structured interviews were undertaken with stakeholders. A participation strategy and CAPP prepared and implemented by an NGO under Tranches 1 and 2 will be continued under Tranche 3.|
|During Project Implementation||Information sharing and consultations will be pursued during project implementation and monitoring. As in Tranches 1 and 2, consultations will be documented.|
|Consulting Services||All loan consultants required for the Investment Program implementation, including Tranche 3, have already been engaged under Tranches 1 and 2 and will be continued under Tranche 3.|
|Procurement||The procurement of goods and services will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time) and ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time), respectively. These will follow the substantive procedures and modes as agreed under Tranche 1 and further detailed under the Procurement Plan for Tranche 3. The Government of Rajasthan's standard bidding documents and procurement procedures, as used for national competitive bidding (NCB) under the completed IND-Loan 1647 and further applicable to Tranches 1 and 2, as reviewed by ADB with the executing agency, and with certain modifications found consistent with ADB requirements shall apply as reflected in the Procurement Plan. Further modifications, if any, together with justifications, shall be furnished to ADB by the EA through the Government for ADB's prior approval, and necessary provisions and detailed procedures for the Investment Program will be incorporated in the PAM.|
