Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Entails construction of elderly care facilities, hospitals, and a training facility. An initial environmental examination, including an environmental management plan, was prepared and disclosed on the ADB website on 9 July 2020.
Involuntary Resettlement 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 due to the project. A due diligence of land acquisition and resettlement was carried out for lands already acquired, which was not in anticipation of ADB financing the project, to confirm that there are no past nor present concerns, outstanding grievances, or complaints related to involuntary resettlement impacts. Key information in the resettlement plan and due diligence report have been disclosed to the project-affected persons.
Indigenous Peoples Ethnic minorities account only for 0.11% of the total population. They belong to Hui, Manchu, Miao, Mongolian, and Tujia ethnic minorities and are well inter-related with the Han majority. Economic status of ethnic minorities is similar to that of Han majority. Those ethnic minorities will benefit, as others will do, from the project. Therefore, an ethnic minority development plan has not been prepared.
