Water and other urban infrastructure and services / Urban flood protection - Urban policy, institutional and capacity development - Urban sanitation - Urban solid waste management

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Effective gender mainstreaming
Description The project will finance environmental infrastructure (for flood protection, drainage, wastewater management and treatment, and solid waste management) in Kampong Chhnang and Pursat. The project will finance small-scale community-driven environmental infrastructure; strengthen sector operations and coordination; and build capacity for project management and operations and maintenance.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Impact Increased economic activities and environmental protection in towns in the Tonle Sap basin (Tonle Sap Urban Development Strategic Framework 2014 2030 [forthcoming])
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Improved urban services and enhanced climate change resilience in Kampong Chhnang and Pursat municipalities.
Progress Toward Outcome In February 2019 the Government requested the cancellation of the Kampong Chhnang Embankment package and a reallocation of the funds to sewerage, stormwater drainage and wastewater treatment in Kampong Chhnang, where no centralized sewerage system or wastewater treatment exists. The detailed design of the replacement subproject is ongoing, and ADB is preparing a major scope change to be processed by Q1 2021.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. Kampong Chhnang urban area environmental improvements

2. Pursat urban area environmental improvements

3. Community mobilization and environmental improvements

4. Strengthened sector coordination and operations

5. Strengthened capacity for project implementation, and operations and maintenance

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues) Solid waste management contracts for both Pursat and Kampong Chhnang were signed in March 2020 and the landfill sites are under construction. The combined stormwater / sewerage works in Pursat was awarded in December 2019 and is also under construction. The flooding in Pursat in late 2020 has not affected the Wastewater treatment plant site, as this was designed to be above flood levels and the site raised accordingly. For the NGO & Community package, at least 350 participants trained to date; 215 (61%) are women. COVID-19 awareness training has been ongoing, and the NGO has been mobilized to assist the Provincial Government of Pursat in their flood response (in the project villages).
Geographical Location Kampong Chhnang, Pursat
Safeguard Categories
Environment B
Involuntary Resettlement B
Indigenous Peoples B
Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The environment safeguard category is B. Initial environmental examinations and an environmental assessment review framework have been prepared. Climate resilience measures are integrated into the project. Environmental impacts are related to siting, design, construction, and operation; and mitigation measures are part of the environment management plans (EMPs). EMPs have been prepared for solid waste management, embankment protection, drainage, and riverbank erosion protection, and will form part of the bidding and contract documents. Potential adverse impacts during construction are expected to be temporary and will be mitigated through the EMPs. The project includes budget and institutional arrangements for EMP implementation and monitoring. The IEE/EMPs will be updated on completion of DED.
Involuntary Resettlement The safeguard category for involuntary resettlement is B in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). During project approval, an estimated 78,815 m2 of land (56,945 m2 [public] and 21,860 m2 [private]) were identified for acquisition. About 139 affected households (or 576 affected persons) were estimated as incurring minor impacts resulting from the loss of fixed assets and sources of incomes or livelihoods. About 25 affected households (108 affected persons) were estimated as being severely affected by loss of agricultural land or permanent loss of land use equivalent to 10% or more of their total productive assets. These figures are to be updated based on detailed design and the detailed measurement survey.
Indigenous Peoples The indigenous peoples safeguard category is B. Ethnic Cham and Vietnamese were identified and meaningfully consulted in Kampong Chhnang villages. They live alongside the Khmer majority and are well integrated the larger community. Design features are included to ensure the ethnic Cham and Vietnamese are beneficiaries and are meaningfully consulted. The Kampong Chhnang river embankment in some parts will be constructed parallel to the existing alignment to avoid resettlement impacts. Output 3 (community mobilization and environmental improvements) identifies villages where ethnic Cham and Vietnamese are a majority of beneficiaries. Currently, ethnic minority communities being relocated from project area as part of provincial riverbank improvement program.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design A consultation and participation plan for the project has been developed in accordance with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) guidelines. The plans includes a stakeholder analysis, a record of consultations conducted during project preparation, and a consultation and participation plan. The project also includes a dedicated output (Output 3: Community mobilization and environmental improvements) that has been designed to be community-driven and participatory, focusing on household sanitation improvement for identified poor households, climate change and hygiene awareness and action, and small-scale infrastructure improvements for pre-identified vulnerable groups.
During Project Implementation Consultations are ongoing with various stakeholders, as required. For output 3, focus is on community-driven improvements, designs have been prepared (for the first package), and procurement will commence before end of 2020.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
Procurement All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time). International competitive bidding procedures will be used for civil works contracts estimated to cost $3 million or more, and supply contracts valued at $1 million or higher. Shopping will be used for contracts for procurement of works and equipment worth less than $100,000. In cases where NCB will be used, the first NCB contract will be reviewed and approved by ADB. All succeeding contracts will be post review.
