Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The project is classified as environment category A. The summary environmental impact assessment (EIA) has been circulated to ADB's Board of Directors and posted on the ADB website. The summary EIA concludes that the project has substantial environmental and socioeconomic benefits, and that its potential environmental impacts can be mitigated through the implementation of the environmental management plan. The completed EIAs, based on extensive public consultations, comply with ADB's policies and requirements including ADB's Environmental Assessment Guidelines (2003). The methods and standards applied in the preparation of EIAs for the project subcomponents are in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Environmental Protection (formerly State Environmental Protection Administration), and also meet national and municipal laws and regulations. Although adverse environmental impacts are anticipated during the construction and operation of the project, mitigation measures and the environmental management plan are expected to mitigate these potential impacts. The designs of the road and water supply subcomponents also address a range of climate change issues. They do not significantly contribute to greenhouse gases or increase the region's vulnerability to climate change effects, and they promote the integration of adaptation measures into roads and water supply infrastructure development at the county level. Local environmental protection bureaus will support the implementing agencies in undertaking the environmental management plans. Capacity building in environmental management will be provided for the executing agency, implementing agencies, implementing units, and district and county environmental protection bureaus. The implementing agencies have disclosed relevant environment information to the affected people through consultations during 2008- 2009, and the results and findings were used to modify the EIAs and the project design.
Involuntary Resettlement The project comprises 30 subcomponents involved with land acquisition and resettlement in 8 districts/counties. Eight full RPs for the road subcomponents and five short RPs for the water supply subcomponents were prepared for each of the investment components of the Project during the Project preparation stage. Given significant changes of the impact scope of Fuling, Wushan and Fengjie Road subcomponents, the resettlement plan for these subcomponents were updated and approved by ADB in early 2013. In addition, two new roads were proposed in Wushan and Fengjie County and two new RPs were finalized in July 2014. So far, CPMO confirmed 6 components were not financed by ADB loan, including Qianjiang Road, Youyang Road, Yunyang Road, Fengjie water supply, Wushan BaishuI road and Fuling Baizhong Road. For those subcomponents were not financed by ADB, CPMO are reminded that the LAR should be monitored as long as they are still under the project.
Indigenous Peoples The project will reduce poverty by ensuring that targeted poor communities have access to safe and reliable water supplies and upgraded and expanded road networks. This will incrementally improve the living conditions of residents and migrants by providing better and safer access to jobs and social services. The project's components will stimulate investment in the industry and the services sectors. Up to 80% of construction jobs created by the project may be classified as unskilled, and many are likely to be filled by the unemployed. Since unemployment is a primary cause of poverty in the project area, the poor will benefit disproportionately from the jobs it creates. About CNY44.7 million in employment benefits will be generated; and women, ethnic minorities, and poor people will be prioritized for jobs during construction. The project will reduce the incidence of waterborne diseases, cutting medical costs by up to CNY10 million per year during 2014- 2033.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Extensive consultations were carried out during processing phase.
During Project Implementation Extensive consultatations are being conducted during project implementation.
