|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||Initial environmental examinations (IEEs) with environmental management plans (EMPs) were prepared for the subprojects in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS), 2009, and government laws (Appendix 10 of the PFR Report for Project 2). These were publicly disclosed. The Environmental Assessment and Review Framework prepared in 2012 was updated (Appendix 9 of the PFR Report for Project 2), to provide guidance on safeguard screening, assessment, institutional arrangements, and processes to be followed for components of the project, where design takes place after ADB approval. Described below are the institutional roles and responsibilities to ensure subprojects, in its project cycle, will not deteriorate or interfere with the environmental sensitivity of a project area but rather improve environmental quality through development of infrastructure facilities.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||The Resettlement Framework was updated to ensure consistency with ADB's SPS 2009 and government's laws. Three Resettlement Plans and 11 due diligence reports were prepared for Project 2, in accordance with ADB's SPS, 2009, and government laws. The Resettlement Plans were approved by ADB and publicly disclosed.|
|Indigenous Peoples||Due diligence on indigenous people reveals that: (i) Project 2 will not have any impacts on indigenous peoples as the project sites are located in KMC with no indigenous people communities living in project sites. Any unanticipated impacts of the project will be documented and mitigated based on the spirit of the principles agreed upon in the Resettlement Framework and ADB SPS 2009 on Involuntary Resettlement. The PMU will have a dedicated social safeguard officer (SSO) and will be assisted by the Resettlement Specialist from DSC to monitor project compliance on safeguards. The following are institutional roles and responsibilities to ensure social safeguards requirements are followed during design and construction stages.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The consultation and participation plan for Project 2 has been prepared.

They provide information on: (i) who is responsible to ensure the actions and strategy are implemented, and (ii) what resources are required to implement the plan and strategy.|
