Lao People's Democratic Republic : Second Greater Mekong Subregion Corridor Towns Development Project

Sovereign Project | 46443-003

The Second Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Corridor Towns Development Project (the project) represents the second phase of the ongoing GMS Corridor Towns Development Project in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam. It supports the first four strategic thrusts of the GMS Strategic Framework 20122022 namely (i) strengthening infrastructure linkages; (ii) facilitating cross-border trade, investment, and tourism; (iii) enhancing private sector participation and competitiveness; and (iv) developing human resources. The focus on corridor town development follows an approach that will maximize the economic benefits of increased trade and traffic flows along the major transport corridors in the GMS with the expected positive impacts resulting from accelerated investments in strategically located towns and cities, and added value on economic growth through development oriented on green growth and climate resilience.

Description
The Second Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Corridor Towns Development Project (the project) represents the second phase of the ongoing GMS Corridor Towns Development Project in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam. It supports the first four strategic thrusts of the GMS Strategic Framework 20122022 namely (i) strengthening infrastructure linkages; (ii) facilitating cross-border trade, investment, and tourism; (iii) enhancing private sector participation and competitiveness; and (iv) developing human resources. The focus on corridor town development follows an approach that will maximize the economic benefits of increased trade and traffic flows along the major transport corridors in the GMS with the expected positive impacts resulting from accelerated investments in strategically located towns and cities, and added value on economic growth through development oriented on green growth and climate resilience. The objective is to strengthen competitiveness of the GMS economic corridors through environmental infrastructure.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Towns along the North-South Economic Corridor (NSEC) which links Lao PDR with People's Republic of China (PRC), Thailand and Myanmar are well positioned to serve as dynamic centers of investment and economic growth. The strategic location of the corridor towns provides the stimulus for increased trade and investment. Access to markets will provide many incentives for local economies in the hinterlands of the corridor towns. Given these development opportunities, and with the rapid growth of the urban population and expansion of these areas, several corridor towns are now facing demands for urban infrastructure and essential support services. Two project towns in Lao PDR along the NSEC, which traverses the region from the city of Kunming in Yunnan Province of the PRC to Bangkok, Thailand, were selected as project areas on the basis of their economic potential, environmental infrastructure constraints and expressed commitments. Houayxay is a medium-sized town and the administrative capital of Bokeo Province in the north-western part of Lao PDR and lies in proximate distance to the country's border with Myanmar and Thailand. Luang Namtha Town is the administrative capital of the Luang Namtha Province in the north-western part of Lao PDR bordering PRC and Myanmar. Luang Namtha Town is strategically located in proximate distance to the Lao PDR-PRC border. The project is in line with the ADB Country Partnership Strategy for Lao PDR; ADB's Urban Operational Plan which encourages economic competiveness of cities, green development, and inclusive growth; the GrEEEn Cities Approach, which has been piloted in several cities in Viet Nam, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Indonesia; ADB's Water Operational Plan; the GMS Strategic Framework; and the GMS Regional Investment Framework Implementation Plan (2014-2018). The towns under this project were selected and prioritized under the GMS Regional Investment Framework, as towns that are both localized within the GMS economic corridors and directly contribute to economic and urban development.
Impact

Maintain economic growth, achieve poverty reduction targets, ensure sustainable development, and support regional integration in the towns of Houayxay and Luang Namtha (Seventh Five-Year National Socio-Economic Development Plan, 20112015)

Both provincial governments have provided written commitments to ensure budget availability for O&M of the project assets. The project's soft components have been completed.

Implementation Progress

Description of Project Outputs

1. The SLEDPs developed

2. Priority urban infrastructure investments implemented

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)
Strategic Local Economic Development Plans (SLEDPs) have been prepared by the PPTA, and updated by the project's implementation consultant. The SLEDPs were endorsed by the provincial governments in December 2019.Three workshops have been completed. The third workshop, Training on Urban Planning and Urban Design and Workshop on GrEEEn City Action Plan took place on 30 September to 3 October 2019 in Luang Namtha and 7 to 10 October 2019 in Houayxay. All civil works packages have been completed, with the works for the last two packages were done before the project closing. There are a total of 12 civil works packages (6 for Luang Namtha, and 6 for Houayxay). The project has secured commitment from the provincial government re: proper budget allocation for the O&M of the project assets. 50 (43%) out of 117 participants were women trained in key project management area.164 persons 83(50.6%) out of 164 were female involved in project implementation and delivery (community leaders, government officers, and consultants) provided gender sensitization training. A total of 45 PCU/PIU staff, 16 (36%) are women.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation

During Project Design
During Project Implementation
The Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MPWT) is the executing agency (EA) for the project, through the Department of Housing and Urban Planning (DHUP). It provides overall policy guidance and oversee implementation in accordance with the objectives and scope of the project. Under DHUP, a Project Coordination Unit (PCU) serves as the technical team, working closely with project implementation units (PIUs) to be established at provincial level. The project's Central Project Steering Committee (CPSC) and Provincial Project Steering Committee (PPSCs) have been established. Each of the steering committees are convened annually or on an as-needed basis. Effective monitoring and public consultation with all stakeholders and affected people at all stages of subprojects implementation are ensured. In compliance with ADB's information disclosure and consultation requirements, the safeguard documents will be posted on ADB's website. Stakeholder consultations are conducted through formal and informal focus group discussions. A grievance redress mechanism helps to facilitate resolution of complaints regarding project performance. The resettlement plan was updated and disclosed after detailed design and cleared by ADB prior to contract awards.
