Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Forecasts suggest that Asia and the Pacific will be the world's fastest-growing region through 2030, when it will receive 535 million tourists, or 30% of the global market share. In 2016, ASEAN countries received 116 million international tourists, up 42% compared with 2011. ASEAN arrivals are expected to grow 5.1% per year and reach 187 million in 2030. Within ASEAN, Viet Nam, Cambodia and the Lao PDR actively cooperate to promote multicountry tour programs that connect their economies with larger, more affluent regional markets.

Viet Nam's international tourist arrivals reached 10.01 million in 2016 after growing by just over 10% annually since 2009. Top source markets are the People's Republic of China (27%), the Republic of Korea (15%), and Japan (7%). Domestic tourism is also substantial, with more than 62 million trips in 2016. Tourism contributes nearly 5% to Viet Nam's gross domestic product and generates 72% of service exports, directly supporting 1.9 million jobs

the majority are held by women in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The government targets a 10% gross domestic product contribution by 2020, when tourism is expected to generate $32.5 billion and sustain 1.05 million new tourism-related jobs.

Government efforts to upgrade gateway airports, transnational railways and highways, and secondary roads to boost travel and trade are supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and other development partners. Regional policies to liberalize transport services and ease cross-border tourism complement physical infrastructure investments. For example, Viet Nam permits prearranged tourist visas on arrival for 182 countries, electronic visas for 46 countries, and grants 15-day tourist visa exemptions to citizens of all ASEAN countries. As a result, the number of visitors arriving by air in 2016 was 8.3 million, and 1.5 million entered using private buses or personal vehicles.

Even with these strengths and opportunities, Viet Nam ranks low in the World Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index, mainly because secondary destinations lack sufficient transport infrastructure, urban sanitation and public spaces, and high-quality tourism services. Other underlying problems are inadequate public infrastructure asset maintenance, weak tourism planning, and ineffective marketing, which collectively undermine the business-enabling environment for tourism. Consequently, in 2016, Viet Nam's share of ASEAN international tourist arrivals was only 8.6%. Imbalanced tourism growth within the country is another consequence of underinvestment in secondary destinations, with more than half of international tourist arrivals and corresponding benefits accruing to Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Ha Long Bay and Da Nang.

Secondary towns in Viet Nam's segment of the GMS eastern corridor are vulnerable to climate change and natural disasters. Risks include stronger and more frequent typhoons, storm surges along the eastern seaboard, and intensifying rainfall and flooding in major river valleys. These risks are exacerbated by limited country capacity to integrate adaptation and mitigation solutions. Countering climate change and natural disasters requires finance and knowledge to retrofit and construct climate-resilient infrastructure and promote resource-efficiency certification programs. Public awareness campaigns to promote lower-carbon travel, emission offsets, and environment-friendly tourism services are also needed.

To help remove these constraints, the project builds on ADB's ongoing GMS Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project in Viet Nam and the GMS Sustainable Tourism Development Project (2008-2015) by selectively financing climate-resilient rural roads, water transport infrastructure, seaside storm defenses, public greenspace improvements, and capacity building for better destination management, all of which is needed to boost tourist arrivals and spending in secondary destinations. Priority investments are (i) road improvements to link small towns with rural community-managed tourist attractions, (ii) ferry ports to increase passenger-handling capacities and give private operators the facilities needed to expand water transport and recreation services, (iii) seawalls, coastal revetments, and drainage improvements in flood-prone areas, and (iv) capacity building to support the implementation of ASEAN tourism standards and infrastructure operation and maintenance (O&M). The integrated design will assist Hoa Binh, Nghe An, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien Hue provinces attract more and higher-spending visitors, thus contributing to more balanced tourism growth and employment-intensive SME development in lagging areas.

Impact

Sustainable, inclusive, and more balanced tourism development achieved (ASEAN Tourism Strategic Plan 2016-2025)

VNAT is to carry out the awareness improvement and HUC to disseminate the ASEAN green hotel standards. The following trainings have been delivered to the project provinces:- Tourism market trench in Vietnam and the World- Developing tourism destination trademark- Developing tourism products- Tourism destination managementThua Thien Hue has received the certification of green hotel for 2 hotels/resorts (Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa in 2022, Pilgrimage Village in 2018).For Hoa Binh, Quang Binh, and Quang Tri, The Departments of Tourism have implemented the dissemination and propaganda of ASEAN tourism standards as well as its benefits to all organizations/units operating in the field of tourism in the provinces.For Nghe An, the implementation support consultant will work with Nghe An Department of Tourism to implement in 2024.Hue city has received the certification of green hotel for 2 hotels/resorts (Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa in 2022, Pilgrimage Village in 2018).For Hoa Binh, Quang Binh, and Quang Tri, The Departments of Tourism have implemented the dissemination and propaganda of ASEAN tourism standards as well as its benefits to all organizations/units operating in the field of tourism in the provinces.For Nghe An, the implementation support consultant will work with Nghe An Department of Tourism to implement in 2024.The implementation support consultants will assist the IAs in preparing an O&M plan for each project-supported infrastructure. Thua Thien Hue and Hoa Binh subprojects are expected to complete the civil works construction within the current loan closing date 30Jun24. The other subprojects are processing a loan extension for 12 months.MCST in Mar23 requested five provinces to each select one tourism facility funded by the project to participate in ADB TA 6899 that would support the development of a PPP proposal for the facility. Quang Binh and Thua Thien Hue submitted proposals for O&M service. Because Quang Binh experienced a delay in constructing the tourist infrastructure due to rebidding, Thua Thien Hue whose civil works achieved notable progress is recommended for the PPP pilot. The PPP international specialist paid a PPP scoping visit on 5-7Dec23 to Thua Thien Hue and initially acknowledged the tourist piers' great potential.Assigned by MCST, The Hanoi University of Culture (HUC) is implementing the destination management capacity-building activities. 1. HUC has conducted training for managers and workers in 4 provinces, specifically as follows: Hoa Binh: 98 (20 women) Nghe An: 152 (41 women) Quang Binh: not yet Quang Tri: 31 (16 women) Hue: 36 (09 women) - Names of training courses: + Training and technical training on destination development and management + Training and education on financial mechanisms, sustainable operation and maintenance of tourist destinations.2. Providing guidance on developing heritage plans and explanations (9 plans for each place):- Plan to develop a tourist destination management plan that meets international requirements - Plan to establish destination management organizations - - - Prepare and issue natural, historical and cultural heritage management plans- Guide and support the development of heritage explanatory documents. In addition, the PMUs supported by the implementation support consultants are supposed to involve in the training activities, specifically: Nghe An: + Currently, all small businesses and households working as community tourism site managers along the Cua Lo embankment have ended their contracts with Cua Lo Town. After the project is completed and households are identified as tourism site managers, the Department of Tourism will conduct training activities for these subjects with the participation of at least 30% women. + Currently, 2 sub-projects in Nghe An province are in the construction phase and the construction progress has reached nearly 50% of the volume. Therefore, training to improve knowledge on building and implementing O&M plans has not been implemented in this reporting period. PMU noted this indicator and prepared a training plan for 2024. Even though there was no training, the implementation support consultant also supported the PMU to develop an O&M plan. This plan also mentioned the role of tourism site managers, local authorities and stakeholders in O&M work. PMU will note this content before handing over the project to the operating management unit. Hoa Binh, Quang Binh and Quang Tri: Not yet implemented the training programs for sustainable operations and maintenance of facilities constructed by the project, including on PPP for O&M by National Institutional Specialist; the trainings are planned to implement from April 2024.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is categorized B for environment. The participating provinces prepared one initial environmental examination and five environmental management plans (EMPs), each covering the project's area of influence and all road, ferry pier, coastal protection, and public space improvement subprojects. The EMPs provide adequate measures to mitigate the expected minor and temporary construction impacts and the potential adverse environmental impacts of increased tourism activity, particularly in coastal environments and near protected areas. Better roads, drainage and flood protection, safe ferry piers, improved public green space, and the adoption of ASEAN tourism standards are expected to generate overall net environmental benefits. Loan covenants require contractors and destination management agencies to comply with initial environmental examination and EMP mitigation measures.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is categorized B for involuntary resettlement. Land acquisition and business disruption will affect 176 households (759 affected people) in four provinces (Hoa Binh, Nghe An, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien Hue). There are 20 severely affected households (86 severely affected people). One house-cum-shop will be physically displaced, and 72 households are classified vulnerable including 56 Muong ethnic minority households. Due diligence confirms at preliminary design there are no involuntary resettlement impacts expected in Quang Binh. Three resettlement plans and one combined resettlement and ethnic minority development plan were prepared by the provincial executing agencies with the assistance of social development specialists. All plans reflect meaningful consultations with affected households and include suitable livelihood improvement programs and grievance redress mechanisms. The initial resettlement and compensation costs are estimated at $813,256. This amount is considered adequate based on the inventories of losses prepared in consultation with the affected households. PPCs will appoint qualified PMU staff to properly implement the plans using project resources.
Indigenous Peoples The project is categorized B for indigenous peoples. The project will positively affect Muong ethnic people by creating culturally appropriate jobs, diversifying income, and strengthening their involvement in tourism management and decision making. Ethnic groups will equally benefit from improved access to economic opportunities and social services, better destination management, and capacity building. The project will not displace ethnic households from traditional or customary lands or negatively impact ethnic minority identity, culture, or customary livelihood systems. The resettlement and ethnic minority development plan identifies the potential negative impacts, and contains adequate measures to mitigate them.
