The Asian Development Bank is helping People’s Republic of China improve road safety in Shaanxi Province, a mountainous region with a high number of road accidents. The project is financing all-weather surfaces and safety features on hundreds of kilometers of rural roads. It is also training provincial traffic management staff and conducting community awareness programs on road safety.

|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||A consolidated environmental impact assessment and environmental management plan (EMP) covers all project components, complies with the PRC's regulatory requirements and ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009), and was disclosed on the ADB website on 1 April 2015. Public consultation informed the project design and environmental impact assessment process, and will continue during project implementation. The EMP outlines potential impacts, mitigation and monitoring measures, institutional arrangements, training requirements, and implementation budget. The EMP implementation budget is 1.1% of the total project budget. Capacity development and institutional strengthening are proposed to minimize environmental risks. Environmental complaints will be handled through a grievance redress mechanism.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||LAR impacts are attributable mainly to the trunk road component. Measures to avoid or minimize displacement were considered in the project design. Rural road improvement will result in minor LAR. The estimated permanent land acquisition for the project roads is 3,429 mu including dry farm land, garden land, forest land, house plots, and barren land. The total area of house and building demolition is 62,934 square meters, involving residential houses and other structures. An estimated 12,527 persons in 3,341 rural households will be affected, including 3,013 households affected by land acquisition only and 328 households by both land acquisition and house demolition. LAR impacts are adequately assessed. Project roads are existing roads so land acquisition impacts do not cause significant land loss for affected households. The five resettlement plans prepared to address project-related LAR impacts are adequate. SPTD has previously worked on ADB-financed projects and has sufficient institutional capacity and commitment to manage social safeguards risks emanating from LAR. Capacity building for the implementing agencies on social safeguard implementation is integrated in the project design. Project-affected people were consulted during resettlement plan preparation. Approved resettlement plans have been disclosed to the affected peoples and were posted on the ADB website on 18 May 2015.|
|Indigenous Peoples||Han Chinese, the PRC's majority ethnic group, comprise 99% of the project area population.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The SPTD will ensure that local communities affected by the project are consulted before each subproject implementation under the provisions of the SDAP, RPs and EIA/EMP, and after subproject implementation, to assess and remedy any residual concerns. Public awareness programs for HIV/AIDS will be coordinated by the FFPO. The Walk Wise consultant will work closely with the IAs and EA to develop key road safety messages and will develop a set of communication materials including : videos, billboards, banners, flyers, and posters. These materials will communicate the objectives of the program and the importance of safe, high-quality roads in their communities. The consultant will distribute these materials at public events, with the objective to educate the wider community on smart road user behavior and reinforce the messages taught in the target schools.|
|During Project Implementation||This will be monitored during implementation.|
|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 where there is any ADB funding will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time). Procurement shall use the latest ADB standard bidding documents which can be downloaded from ADB's website. For procurement under NCB, the following provisions will apply (i) the advertisement may be limited to the national press, an official gazette or an open access website; (ii) bidding shall follow the standard bidding documents issued by MOF and approved by ADB; and (iii) bidding documents may be only in the Chinese language, and CNY may be used for the purpose of bidding and payment.
