Description Project 1 is representative of subprojects to be financed under the investment program. Under output 1, project 1 will finance Urban Water Supply and Sanitation (UWSS) infrastructure in three towns of the Tungabhadra subbasin: Byadagi, Davangere, and Harihar.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Wide variations exist in coverage in Project 1 urban local bodies (ULBs), ranging from 48% in Harihar to 64% in Byadagi. Use of shared water connections in Project 1 ULBs ranges from 4% to 13%. About 40% of households in Harihar and Byadagi and 20% 24% of households in Davangere are dependent on public taps. None of the Project 1 ULBs have a continuous supply of water. The average per capita water consumption in the three project ULBs is as low as 60 liters per capita per day and even lower for below poverty line households. Of the low income households living in slums, 15% are located within the program areas. Baseline survey results indicate that only 54% 66% of households in the program areas have access to individual toilets. Use of shared toilets is anywhere from 5% to 11%. Open defecation varies from 3% to 41% and access to sewerage systems ranges from 13% to 77%. The baseline results further suggest that the percentage of below poverty line households in Project 1 areas ranges from 17% to 37%, female-headed households from 6% to 11%, and that the percentage of other disadvantaged households is 26%.

Project 1 will provide (i) increased water treatment capacity (15,000 cubic meters per day) and improvements to water supply networks (1,065 km) to ensure comprehensive, efficient and continuous water supply; and (ii) increased wastewater treatment capacity (4 new sewage treatment plants with a total capacity of 48,000 cubic meters per day) and improvements to the sewerage networks (365 km of pipeline and 5,000 pro-poor toilets) to promote environmental protection. Output 2 will support reform implementation and will finance (i) a fraction of the ULB incentive fund, and services to (ii) draft the public standpost guidelines, (iii) prepare selected IT-based modules and pilot them in three selected towns, (iv) assist mainstreaming private sector participation through performance-based contracts in water schemes, and (v) develop and deliver a communication and awareness campaign. Under output 3, it will finance consultancies for project management and design and supervision, as well as capacity development activities to strengthen KUIDFC's financial intermediary mandate and ULBs' administrative functions (through training of over 75 officials).

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Three initial environmental examinations with environmental management plans were prepared for project 1 in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and government laws. The initial environmental examinations conclude that no significant adverse impact is anticipated as a result of UWSS infrastructure expansion and rehabilitation works proposed in the project 1 towns. It is envisaged that the net environmental benefits to the population of the three towns will be positive and significant as a result of improved (i) water efficiency and security through the implementation of non-revenue water reduction programs; and (ii) river water quality through the expansion of sewerage networks, treatment capacity, and sanitation coverage. The initial environmental examinations outline a grievance redress mechanism to ensure easy and quick redress of any complaints or concerns during project implementation. The environmental management plans provide adequate mitigation measures to address temporary construction impacts, including traffic management, to ensure limited disruption to traffic flow and access.
Involuntary Resettlement Temporary impacts on loss of income to shop owners, street vendors, and hawkers are envisaged due to construction and rehabilitation of water supply and sewerage networks in project towns. A total of 9.09 hectares of private agricultural land will need to be acquired for the construction of sewage treatment plants in Byadagi and Davengere, impacting 12 landowners. The new service reservoirs, sewage treatment plants, lift stations, and community toilets will be located within existing facilities or in government and/or community lands. One voluntary land donation for a sewage lift station in Harihar has been identified. Independent third party validation of the donated land was done and the report is included in the final Harihar resettlement plan. The draft resettlement plans of Byadagi and Davengere were prepared in consultation with affected persons during the preparation stage in accordance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The final resettlement plans will be prepared upon the completion of detailed design and submitted to ADB for review and approval prior to implementation. The Indian Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act is in effect since 1 January 2014.
Indigenous Peoples Based on socioeconomic surveys, no indigenous people reside in project sites. Improved water supply and sewerage networks will benefit all households equally.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Information flows will focus on: (i) sharing project information (scope and progress) with decision makers, responsible agencies, consultants and contractors; (ii) explain the project and resolve concerns raised by affected persons; and (iii) involve beneficiaries in field-level monitoring activities. 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.
During Project Implementation Meaningful and widespread consultation will continue throughout implementation. The project will recruit a social development consultant at the regional project management unit who will work closely with the poor, the disadvantaged, and women to promote community participation and development. Household level disaggregated data (by ethnicity, sex, and social and economic status) will be collected to inform targeted programming and identify implementation gaps in relation to social inclusion.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) will be financed by the State Government. KUIDFC has long standing experience recruiting and managing consultants. ADB will satisfy itself that recruitment is in line with Clause 1.8 of ADB's Guidelines on the use of Consultants.
Procurement All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). The concurred standard bidding documents for national competitive bidding will be applicable for use under all Projects under the Facility. The procurement plan indicates the threshold, mode of procurement and consultant selection, review procedures, and contract packages.
