Description Tranche 4 will improve and maintain about 3,108 kilometers (km) of rural access roads, 248 km of national roads, project management and consulting services financed under tranches 1, 2 and 3.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The absence of an all-weather road connectivity is a serious problem in Sri Lanka's rural areas, preventing communities from accessing socioeconomic centers. Poor road infrastructure has a strong link to poverty and affects economic growth in rural areas, agricultural productivity, and employment. The Government of Sri Lanka is addressing this problem through a country-wide rural road investment program - aimed at providing all-weather road connectivity to eligible unconnected rural habitations. The Asian Development Bank's (ADB's) country partnership strategy, 2018-2022 for Sri Lanka aims to address the major constraints to improving quality of growth and is closely aligned with the government's priorities. The country partnership strategy reconfirms continuing ADB assistance for developing the transport sector, including rural roads, which are critical for rural development in providing access to markets, health, education, and administrative services.
Impact Connectivity between rural communities and socioeconomic centers in Sri Lanka improved.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Tranche 4 is classified as category B, consistent with Tranches 1, 2 and 3 and in accordance with the Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). All Tranche 4-financed projects have been appraised under Tranches 1 and 2; and the environmental assessment and review framework, initial environmental examinations (IEEs), and climate risk assessments remain valid. The due diligence report indicates that the compensatory planting is not as specified in the environmental management plans, therefore RDA is requested to follow up and provide its plan on how it will be achieved. Other environmental safeguard requirements are either complied or being complied with. Monitoring reports are being submitted regularly as required and have been disclosed. There are no outstanding complaints. None of the project roads passed through reserved forest or national parks, sanctuaries, or habitats of protected species, and none of the roads disturbed any cultural heritage or monuments of cultural or historical importance. All bidding documents contained the provincial-specific environmental management plans, environmental monitoring plans, and road-specific environmental code of practice checklists, from which respective contractors prepared road-specific environmental management plans.
Involuntary Resettlement Tranche 4 is categorized as category B for involuntary resettlement following ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The categorization follow those of the previous tranches. All Tranche 4-financed projects have been appraised under Tranches 1 and 2. The due diligence report covering all projects confirms that safeguard impacts are minimal, as envisaged at appraisal, and that Tranches 1, 2 and 3 are compliant with the social safeguards requirements outlined in the resettlement framework and indigenous peoples planning framework prepared for the MFF. All requirements in the frameworks have been met, and all planning documents have been disclosed. The government has committed adequate resources to implement safeguard measures, and project implementation consultant staffs are in place to provide support.
