|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
Initial environmental examinations, including environmental management plans (EMPs), were prepared following ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and the PRC national regulations for the project. An environment and social management system was developed for the FIL component. The executing and implementing agencies are committed to implementing the agreed EMPs and environment and social management system. None of the subprojects will involve environmentally sensitive ecosystems or cultural heritage sites. The FIL will exclude environment category A subprojects from ADB financing. Potential impacts during construction and operation including soil erosion, noise, dust emissions, construction waste and wastewater, and occupational and community health and safety are mostly temporary, predictable, and reversible, and can be mitigated through adherence to national regulations and implementation of the EMPs. Potential impacts during operation which include wastewater, locomotive and vehicle exhaust, dust generated from loading and unloading, noise and vibration,
domestic and kitchen waste, packaging and hazardous (oily) waste, and occupational and community health and safety will be mitigated through the implementation of the EMPs. Meaningful public consultations have been conducted. Grievance redress mechanisms will be
established. Sufficient budget has been allocated in the EMPs to ensure proper implementation of mitigation and monitoring measures during construction and operation. Environmental monitoring reports will be submitted to ADB semiannually during construction and annually during
operation. Initial environmental examinations will be updated as necessary and disclosed on the ADB website if unanticipated impacts are identified during project implementation. A climate risk and adaptation assessment has been conducted and the findings of the assessment will be incorporated in the project design.
A total of 2,035.26 mu of land is required for implementing facilities identified in output 1 (para. 17). All prior land acquisition and house
demolition conducted were not in anticipation of ADB financing. Except for the Civilian Aerospace Park (where limited information was obtained during due diligence, land acquisition, and resettlement), implementation for the other facilities were assessed based on ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement requirements.There are no outstanding or legacy issues on the land allocated for the Railroad Multimodal Commodity Logistics Park and YGUDDA facilities. However, for the Ankang Inland Port Logistics Park subproject, there are 175 households affected by land acquisition that have yet to receive their compensation payment by December 2020. In the Hi-City Park in Xi'an there are 24 affected households that received full payment but are still in transition as construction of their permanent relocation houses is yet to be completed. The respective PIEs have committed to time-bound corrective actions as specified in the due diligence reports. Further, an external monitor will be engaged, and semiannual monitoring reports will be submitted to ADB. Under the FIL component, subprojects classified as category A or B for involuntary resettlement are excluded from ADB financing.
|Indigenous Peoples||The population of scattered ethnic minorities in the three project cities accounts for 0.9% of the total municipal population. The project will benefit all residents, and it does not have differential impacts on any specific ethnic minority communities that would trigger ADB's indigenous peoples policy requirements. The social analysis has confirmed that they will not suffer any adverse impacts because of the project.31 Under the FIL component, subprojects classified as category A or B for indigenous peoples are excluded from ADB financing.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||Project information will be communicated through public consultation meetings, interviews, focus group discussions and, information will be disclosed on ADB's and government's website, in accordance with ADB's requirements of public communications policy.|
|During Project Implementation||Consultations with communities have taken place and will continue through the project implementation. Special attention will be paid for women's participation including other vulnerable groups, such as the poor during further consultation.|
|Consulting Services||A consulting firm will be engaged as project management consultant (PMC) to support the FCUC-PMO in undertaking its responsibilities in connection with project implementation. In addition, PMC will be responsible for monitoring the performance of consultants, contractors and suppliers in accordance with their respective contractual agreements as well as crosschecking invoices and payment claims from consultants, contractors and suppliers in accordance with payment terms under their respective contracts.|
|Procurement||All ADB financed procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and Procurement Regulations for ADB Borrowers (2017, as amended from time to time).|
