Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is category B for environment. A consolidated initial environmental examination and an environmental management plan (EMP), which cover all project components, have been prepared. These documents comply with the PRC's regulatory requirements and ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009), and was disclosed on the ADB website in August 2016. Public consultations were carried out to inform the project design and environmental assessment process, and will continue during project implementation. Capacity development and institutional strengthening will be provided to minimize environmental risks. Environmental complaints will be handled through a project safeguards grievance redress mechanism.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is category B for involuntary resettlement. Land acquisition and resettlement (LAR) impacts are mainly to the rural trunk roads and two rural feeder roads. Rural road improvement will result in partial LAR impacts, as they are existing roads. The LAR impacts have been adequately assessed, and eight resettlement plans have been prepared and disclosed on the ADB website. Public consultations will continue throughout the project cycle, and a grievance-redress mechanism will be established.
Indigenous Peoples The project is category B for ethnic minorities. The Hui are the sole ethnic minority in the project area and the overwhelming population along most of the proposed rural trunk and feeder roads. Over 86% of the direct beneficiaries are Hui. Some minor impacts will occur during road construction and operation, but these will not have significant negative impacts on ethnic culture, social life, religion, or economic development. An ethnic minority development plan (EMDP) was prepared to ensure that the Hui benefit positively from the proposed rural road project and that any negative social impact, direct or indirect, is mitigated or avoided. The actions outlined in the EMDP and integrated into the project, in coordination with other stakeholders, are (i) road safety awareness, (ii) ethnic minority cultural awareness building for the contractors with the county Ethnic and Religious Affairs Committees, and (iii) communicable disease prevention training for villagers by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Public consultations were conducted through formal and informal focus group discussions from October 2015 and will continue throughout the project period by the PMO safeguards focal persons, including consultants and the external monitor. A grievance redress mechanism will be established to address affected people's concerns.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
