Description The project will support development in the city regions of Dhaka and Khulna by building on infrastructure and capacity building initiatives implemented during the first City Region Development Project funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The project will finance crucial infrastructure in urban and peri-urban areas to stimulate growth and improve livability in Dhaka and Khulna, two densely populated and rapidly growing city regions in Bangladesh. The project will also continue strengthening project development capacity, sustainable service delivery, and community awareness.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project builds on lessons and past gains in community awareness, institutional capacity, and coordination among municipalities, while continuing to develop much-needed infrastructure in the Dhaka and Khulna city regions. The project is aligned with the objectives and priorities of the urban sector strategy defined in the government's 7th Five Year Plan; the Local Government (Pourashava) Act, 2009; and the Coastal Development Strategy, 2006. The project is consistent with ADB's country partnership strategy, 2016 2020 for Bangladesh and is aligned with ADB's Strategy 2030 operational priorities, including (i) addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities; (ii) accelerating progress in gender equality; (iii) tackling climate change, building climate change resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability; (iv) making cities more livable; and (v) strengthening governance and institutional capacity (footnote 4). The project is also aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 11 on sustainable cities and communities and Sustainable Development Goal 13 on climate action.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects An environmental assessment and review framework (EARF) has been prepared and disclosed. The project will not include subprojects triggering category A per the EARF. Sample subprojects were appraised and initial environmental examination (IEE) reports were prepared in line with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and the EARF. The IEEs and information on the subprojects indicate that the subprojects are located on existing rights-of-way and government-owned lands, and there are no ecologically sensitive areas in the project municipalities. The potential impacts, such as construction vibration affecting the structural integrity of properties, road safety issues, and safe disposal of excavated materials, are site-specific; few are irreversible and most can be readily mitigated and minimized using proven mitigation measures and environmentally sound engineering and construction practices consistent with international good practice. Stakeholders were involved through meaningful consultations and their views were fed into the IEEs and subproject designs. The consultation process will continue during project implementation.
Involuntary Resettlement An environmental assessment and review framework (EARF) has been prepared and disclosed. The project will not include subprojects triggering category A per the EARF. Sample subprojects were appraised and initial environmental examination (IEE) reports were prepared in line with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and the EARF.

Stakeholders were involved through meaningful consultations and their views were fed into the IEEs and subproject designs. The consultation process will continue during project implementation.
Indigenous Peoples The subproject sites and alignments in the highly urbanized Dhaka and Khulna city regions are not located in the Madhupur area of Dhaka division and Sundarbans area of Khulna division, areas where small ethnic communities are concentrated. Transect walks through subproject sites and alignments do not reveal the presence of small ethnic communities, such as adibashi (tribal) communities, pahari (hill) communities, and forest communities, at these locations. The project will not include any subproject with any impact on small ethnic communities
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Stakeholder consultations and workshops have been held during project preparation.
