Description Project 3 will continue expanding sewerage and drainage services in selected peripheral areas of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) to at least 3,000 additional households and provide sewage treatment for at least 100,000 households covered under Kolkata Environmental Improvement Investment Program. It will construct (i) at least 43 km of additional sewer drain pipes; (ii) four pumping stations and at least 13 km of pumping mains and one existing pumping station upgraded; and (iii) three sewage treatment plants, with at least 115 million liters per day combined capacity.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is mandated to provide urban services, including water supply, sewerage and drainage, to more than 5 million citizens of the Kolkata megacity. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development conducted the first global assessment of port cities' exposure to climate risks in 2007, and identified Kolkata and Mumbai in India among the top 10 cities with high exposure to flooding under current climate change forecasts. Over the last 2 decades, and with external partners' assistance, such as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, KMC has prepared and adopted comprehensive master plans and policies to increase its climate resilience. In 2012, KMC prepared a road map to improve its water supply, sewerage, and drainage services by addressing gaps in coverage and operational efficiency. Physical investment of $4 billion, and other investments in reforms and operational efficiency, including on-the-job training of $20 million, were estimated. Kolkata Environmental Improvement Investment Program is a result of these investment plans and roadmap, master plans, and policies, to meet part of the large investment need to improve urban services and increase its resilience to climate change. Kolkata Environmental Improvement Investment Program incorporates phased sequencing for investment to systematically achieve expansions in sewerage and drainage network in peripheral or previously uncovered areas of Kolkata including the flood prone areas, increase sewage treatment capacity, improve water supply targeting reductions in nonrevenue water and increase financial and operational efficiency for sustained service improvement.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Three initial environmental examinations (IEEs) with environmental management plans (EMPs) were prepared and submitted for ADB's review in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS), 2009, and government laws. Draft IEEs will be updated/finalized based on detailed engineering design or any change in components design, location or unanticipated impacts. The Environmental Assessment and Review Framework (EARF) has been updated to reflect issuances on relevant environmental rules and regulations. The EARF would 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. Safeguards assessment and documentation of the remaining subprojects will be carried out in accordance with the provisions of the EARF. 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. The existing institutional arrangement for implementation of the KEIIP Project 1 and Project 2, which has been functioning satisfactorily, will continue. The responsibilities of the Environmental Specialist in the PMU's SMU include ensuring (i) environmental safeguard issues are addressed; (ii) EMP is implemented; (iii) physical and non-physical activities under the subproject are monitored; and (iv) monitoring reports are prepared on a timely manner and submitted to ADB. The PMU Environmental Specialist will be supported by the environmental and community mobilizer team
Involuntary Resettlement The resettlement framework was updated during the processing of Project 2 in 2015 to ensure consistency with ADB's SPS 2009 and government's laws. Seven land acquisition and involuntary resettlement due diligence reports (DDRs) were prepared and submitted for ADB's review for Project 3, in accordance with ADB's SPS, 2009, and government laws. Safeguards assessment and documentation of the remaining subprojects will be carried out in accordance with the provisions of the resettlement framework, if applicable.
Indigenous Peoples Due diligence on indigenous people reveals that: (i) Project 3 will not have any impacts on indigenous peoples as the project sites are in urban areas with no indigenous people communities living in there. Safeguards assessment and documentation of the remaining subprojects will be carried out in accordance with the provisions of the indigenous people's framework, if applicable.
