Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Investing in road improvement is particularly important at times of economic difficulty deliver four types of benefits: (i) projects create much-needed employment opportunities to support economic recovery, (ii) better roads reduce road user's travel cost and facilitate access to markets, schools and health facilities and thus make residents more productive, (iii) modest spending on road maintenance saves much more costlier rehabilitation later, and (vi) road safety improvements immediately reduce the social cost of traffic accidents.
Impact Development of road, transportation and logistical network that sustains economic growth, is consistent with social needs and demands, and provides safe and comfortable services

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Environment (category B). The initial environmental examination (IEE) complies with ADBs policies and requirements, including the SPS 2009. It identifies potential adverse impacts, which would be mainly during the construction phase such as dust and air quality during asphalt surfacing. Those impacts can be adequately mitigated. Meaningful public consultation was done in accordance with the SPS 2009. The MRTD is committed to implement the environmental management plan of the project and the project specific grievance redress mechanism (GRM). The initial climate risk is screened as low. The MRTD will establish a PIU for the project implementation, which will be responsible for carrying out the environmental management plan, environmental monitoring and reporting, and GRM of the project. The PIU will have a full-time environmental officer, who will be supported by qualified loan implementation environmental consultants. Capacity development training will also be provided to the MRTD, PIU, and contractors for the project. The IEE is under preparation and will be posted on the ADB website prior to the project approval.
Involuntary Resettlement Involuntary resettlement (category B). For output 2, a due diligence report has been prepared, confirming that there are no land acquisition or resettlement impacts as all the related works are limited to the existing ROW. All construction related impacts will be mitigated by the contractor. A resettlement framework is prepared in accordance with the SPS 2009 and national laws and regulations to guide the preparation of resettlement plans and to ensure project impacts remain within category B if not C. The resettlement framework was posted on the ADB website on 9 June 2017. The MRTD is committed to implement the resettlement framework and prepare resettlement plan, when required. The GRM has been agreed with the MRTD and is included in the social development and gender action plan (SDGAP) and resettlement framework.
Indigenous Peoples Indigenous peoples (category C). Based on due diligence, there are no ethnic minorities affected by the project. The three project aimags do not include any separate ethnic minority within the definition of the SPS 2009.
