Description The additional financing will scale up the project that is performing well, by supporting water supply systems improvement in chronic kidney disease-affected areas, and improving local infrastructure and basic services delivery and advancing local government policy reform and capacity strengthening in Pradeshiya Sabhas not supported previously.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Sri Lanka has three types of local authorities under nine provincial councils: (i) municipal councils constituted in cities and large towns, (ii) urban councils for less urbanized areas, and (iii) Pradeshiya Sabhas (local authorities) in peri-urban and rural areas. To respond to the need to improve basic infrastructure and services provided by local authorities, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the Local Government Infrastructure Improvement Project in 2005. The infrastructure improvement project supported subprojects for water supply, roads, drainage and sewerage, and other municipal facilities such as public libraries, health care centers, and office buildings, under a bottom up, demand-driven approach that follows the priorities set out by local authorities, and improves the financial management capacity of these authorities. One limitation of the infrastructure improvement project was that financial constraints prevented participation by poor and financially weak Pradeshiya Sabhas, which thus were unable to benefit. The current project, which was approved in 2011, expanded the infrastructure improvement project's interventions by targeting poorer Pradeshiya Sabhas to improve basic service delivery in less-developed areas in seven of the nine provinces (excluding the Northern and Eastern provinces). The subprojects selected under the current project reflect the needs of the local people and are implemented by local authorities, who will remain responsible for operation and maintenance (O&M) of the assets that are being built.
Impact Local authorities' capacity financially and technically strengthened in less-developed areas of seven provinces in Sri Lanka (defined by project).
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Improved local infrastructure and services delivered effectively by local authorities or the National Water Supply and Drainage Board in less-developed areas of seven provinces in Sri Lanka.
Progress Toward Outcome The loan singed on 2 November 2016, and was effective on 12 April 2017. As of 23 October 2018, out of allocated loan amount of $60.00 million, contracts awarded are amounting to $ 27.06 million (45%) and disbursement amounting to $9.77 million (16%). The overall physical progress of the project is 39% against elapsed period of 55%.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Environmental assessment and review framework updated. Three initial environmental examinations (IEEs) with environmental management plans prepared for sample subprojects confirmed no significant environmental impacts as subprojects are small scale in nature and have very limited footprint. Subproject sites are located outside sensitive areas and any impacts during construction and operation can be avoided and/or mitigated through proper design and high-quality construction and O&M practices. IEEs will form part of the bidding and contract documents and will be submitted to ADB for review, no objection, and disclosure prior to contract awards.
Involuntary Resettlement Resettlement framework updated. Due diligence reports for sub-projects on land acquisition and resettlement were prepared to confirm no impacts on involuntary resettlement.
Indigenous Peoples Indigenous peoples planning framework updated. Sample subprojects have no impacts on indigenous peoples. No involvement of indigenous people.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Consultation has been/will be held with stakeholders of subprojects. Consultation and participation plan is prepared for the project.
During Project Implementation Consultation and public participation will continue throughout project implementation, and any safeguard-related grievances will be handled in accordance with the existing grievance redress mechanism.
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). An estimated 711 person-months (24 international, 687 national) of consulting services are required to (i) facilitate project management and implementation, (ii) carry out feasibility studies, detailed engineering designs, and construction supervision, and (iii) undertake validation and entry of local authorities' data with respect to tax and licenses. Two packages of consulting firms (36 person months) will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a standard quality:cost ratio of 80:20 under the current loan and to be extended to Additional Financing. Another 5 Packages (4 DSC and 1 PMC, 675 person-months including 651 national and 24 international) will be recruited through single source selection (SSS) method, since the additional financing project is continuing with the original project activities in non-stop nature and the present consultants has satisfactory performance. A few individual consultants (114 person months) will also be engaged to support project management.
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 (ICB) procedures will be used for civil works contracts estimated to cost $ 15 million or more, and supply contracts valued at $2 million or higher. National competitive bidding (NCB) procedures will be used for civil works contracts worth less than $15 million, and supply contracts worth less than $2 million. Shopping will be used for contracts for procurement of works and equipment worth less than $100,000. All contracts will be less than the above threshold for ICB. No contracts under the project are expected to be above the NCB threshold. Post review (sampling) will apply to contracts for works less than $2.0 million and those for goods less than $0.4 million
