|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||The project entails construction of elderly care facilities, hospitals, and a training facility. An initial environmental examination, including an environmental management plan (EMP), was prepared and disclosed on the ADB website on 9 July 2020. The impacts during construction and operation (noise, air quality, wastewater, solid wastes, risk to community, and occupational health and safety) will be insignificant and localized, and will be effectively mitigated through the implementation of the EMP.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||The project requires 140.63 mu of land, of which 88.35 mu are rural collective lands to be acquired and 52.28 mu are state-owned lands acquired in 2013 for another project. A resettlement plan has been prepared to address land acquisition and house demolition impacts because of the project. Due diligence carried out for lands already acquired, which was not in anticipation of ADB financing the project, confirmed that there are no past or present concerns, outstanding grievances, or complaints related to involuntary resettlement impacts. Key information in the resettlement plan and due diligence report has been disclosed to the project-affected persons.|
|Indigenous Peoples||Ethnic minorities account only for 0.55% of the Xiangyang's total population and include the Hui, Manchu, Miao, Mongolian, and Tujia ethnic minorities, which are well interrelated with the Han majority. The economic status of ethnic minorities is similar to that of the Han majority. Those ethnic minorities will benefit, as others will do, from the project. Therefore, an ethnic minority development plan has not been prepared.|
