Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

As of 23 September 2021, 24 contracts have been awarded. The total contract amount is 24.37 million (27.1% of the total loan amount), out of which 20.70 million have been disbursed (84.9% of the total contract amount and 23.0% of the total loan amount). The loan implementation is on track with its schedule.

At the request of HMG, it is proposed that the following changes be made to the project:

(i) remove consulting service contract Serv-HSC-2: Huangshan Rural Wastewater Discharge Standard Study, as the Anhui Provincial Government already issued a Rural Wastewater Discharge Standard for the whole Anhui Province;

(ii) add new consulting service contract Serv-HSC-2: Pilot Scheme for Realizing the Value of Ecological Products in Huangshan Municipality, to enhance the project's output on green financing mechanism pilot;

(iii) add new consulting service contract Serv-HSC-21: Green Development Plan of Xin'an River Basin in Huangshan Municipality, to support the Government of the PRC's concept of transforming clear water and green mountains into gold and silver mountains and better promote green development in the Xin'an River Basin; and

(iv) add new consulting service contract Serv-HSC-22: Research on Ecological and International Tourism Destination City Development Strategy and Path of Huangshan Municipality, to identify new paths for green industry and urban development in ecological areas and accelerate the realization of a demonstration zone of green development in the Yangtze River Delta.

The proposed changes are being processed for approval by ADB.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is classified by ADB as Category B for environment. The project environmental safeguard assessments and documents comprise: (i) an initial environmental examination (IEE) including an environmental management plan (EMP). The IEE and EMP cover all project components except one, a Green Investment Fund (under output 3), which will be implemented by HTIC; and (ii) an ESMS, for safeguard management for the Green Investment Fund. The IEE, EMP and ESMS have been prepared in compliance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). For all project matters relating to environmental safeguards, the IEE, EMP and ESMS form the basis of the official loan agreement between ADB and the executing agency.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is classified as category B for involuntary resettlement. In total, the project involves 72.31 mu of permanent land occupation (4.63 mu state-owned land and 67.68 mu collective owned land), affecting 200 households with 830 persons. A total of 60 m2 of non-residential house will be affected, involving 1 household with 4 persons. No household will have significant impacts from permanent land acquisition or relocation. A total of 316.43 mu land will be used temporarily, including 219.39 mu state-owned land and 97.04 mu collective land.
Indigenous Peoples The project does not involve impacts on ethnic minority villages or communities that would trigger ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement requirements on indigenous peoples. There are only a few ethnic minority individuals living dispersedly in five counties among the seven project counties/districts. The scattered ethnic minority individuals in the project area are not expected to have differential impacts; and they will enjoy the project benefits as residents in the project area. Therefore, the project is classified as category C on indigenous peoples according to ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009); and no action plan needs to be prepared for ESMS.
