Description The project is aligned with the following impact: Livability of Gia Nghia city in Dak Nong province enhanced. The project will have the following outcome: access to urban environmental infrastructure and services in Gia Nghia improved. The project is expected to benefit approximately 68,215 residents through an improved environment and the establishment of public green spaces around the lakes, and approximately 20,810 residents additionally through access to networked sewer services by 2028. Downstream populations will also benefit from lower pollution loads in water courses, lakes and reservoirs, lowering water treatment costs and improving ecosystem health.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Gia Nghia city (population 68,215) is located in the south of Dak Nong province on the Mo Nong plateau. Gia Nghia city, the provincial administrative capital of Dak Nong province established in 2005, is the youngest city in the country. The city is along National Highway (NH) 14 and is an important economic center of the central highland region. It is connected to Da Lat, a major tourist hub, through NH 28. The planned 128km Gia Nghia-Chon Thanh expressway linking the province to the Ho Chi Minh City region will reduce travel times and potentially strengthen socio-economic development in Gia Nghia. However, in the absence of urban service provision, the new proximity to the economic centers of the south may not translate to socio-economic growth and development in Gia Nghia City, preventing the city from assuming its role as a socioeconomic sub-regional hub. The project will benefit approximately 68,215 residents through an improved environment and the establishment of public green spaces around the lakes, and approximately 20,810 residents additionally through access to networked sewer services by 2028. Downstream populations will also benefit from lower pollution loads in water courses, lakes and reservoirs, lowering water treatment costs and improving ecosystem health.
