Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The climate risk is initially assessed as medium based on the Preliminary Climate Risk Screening. A CRVA will be required to ensure adaptation and mitigation options are integrated in the design of the project and contributions to ADB climate finance targets are optimized. The designs and maintenance frequency will need to take account of projected climate change impacts.
Involuntary Resettlement

The project shall impact on 38 households in total.

Land identified for the construction of the wastewater treatment plant is already owned by the city government and is currently used for agricultural purposes by 13 AHs. There is also potential temporary disturbance in both locations related to construction which will be managed via a traffic management and community consultation strategy that will be developed.

Indigenous Peoples There are no registered customary land or forest areas directly or indirectly impacted by the project. The project does not target IPs and is therefore confirmed to be Category C.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Main institutional stakeholders include the Directorate General of Human Settlements (DGHS) of the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (MPWH), the DGHS offices in West Kalimantan and Central Java, the local governments of Pontianak and Semarang and the water utilities of Pontianak and Semarang. The local population beneficiaries will identify their issues associated with poor sanitation facilities and provide inputs on how these can be improved. People affected by land acquisition (and land clearance), communities along the alignment and their community-based organizations will be involved in assessing impacts, needs and mitigation measures.
During Project Implementation The project will meet with the relevant local governments units, nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and/or community-based organizations, and local communities and affected people. It will supplement information gained from these meetings with surveys. Issues to be discussed include, but are not limited to: (i) current sanitation and hygiene practices in the community; (ii) issues and problems encountered due to current state of sanitation facilities, including those experienced by women, and marginalized groups such as the elderly, persons with disabilities, and children; and their corresponding recommendations; (iii) protection of communities and workers from hazards brought about by civil works in the communities (hazards including, noise and air pollution, and sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment and other forms of SEAH-GBV; and (iv) resettlement and livelihood of project affected persons.
