Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects No significant environmental impacts are anticipated. All project sites are located outside sensitive areas and any impacts during construction and operation can be avoided and/or mitigated through proper design and high-quality construction, as well as the environmental management plans (EMPs) in place for each subproject package. EMPs were updated accordingly at detailed engineering design stage and re-disclosed to the ADB website.
Involuntary Resettlement No significant resettlement impacts are anticipated. Construction of facilities (treatment plants and pipes) will be on government owned land and reticulation systems will be along the right of way with minimal disturbance to livelihoods.
Indigenous Peoples Very few ethnic minorities were identified during the socioeconomic survey undertaken for project preparation. The survey identified ethnic minorities, only in Trakuan village in the Kampong Siem district of Kampong Cham province. 12 households (4.5%) are Cham, and two households (0.5%) are Vietnamese. Given the full integration of ethnic Cham into mainstream Khmer, a very small number of Vietnamese households encountered (who have also been integrated), and the identical impacts and benefits that will be realized by all households in the target areas.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Stakeholders were involved in developing the project through public consultations, after which views expressed were incorporated into the project and in the planning and development of the project. The consultation process will be continued and expanded during project implementation to ensure that stakeholders are fully engaged in the project and have the opportunity to participate in its development and implementation. Measures were taken to include and promote gender equality and women's empowerment in the design of the Project so that women have equitable opportunities for access to and use of relevant services, resources, assets, or opportunities and participation in decision-making process.
During Project Implementation The public consultation and disclosure program is a continuous process throughout the project implementation, including project planning, design and construction. The Project will ensure participation of all stakeholders, which will strengthen inclusiveness. An ongoing communications process will be established with the affected communities to redress the environmental issues likely to surface during construction phases and also regarding the grievance redress mechanism. MISTI and MPWT organize public meetings and will update communities on project implementation progress.
