Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects
The project will contribute to improving the livability and climate resilience of Go Dau district, Tay Ninh province by providing climate resilient urban infrastructures and building capacity for climate resilient and sustainable urban service management benefiting the Go Dau residents. None of the proposed infrastructure is located in legally protected areas or areas recognized for their biodiversity value. The potential negative impacts would mainly be generated during construction. These include elevated traffic safety risks, dust and noise and insanitation on the road and East Vam Co river water pollution. The risks can be mitigated using proper engineering designs and construction management measures that will be required in environment safeguards documents to be prepared following ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (2009). Flooding and climate change risks will be assessed, and mitigation measures will be identified in the climate change assessment linked document. Climate resilience and disaster risk reduction measures will be incorporated into the detailed engineering designs of the project each subproject.
Involuntary Resettlement
The infrastructure rehabilitation/upgrading will be undertaken mainly within existing alignments and will cause land acquisition impacts. There may be new construction in some sections. Involuntary resettlement category A is proposed because preliminary investigations indicate that land acquisition may affect up to more than 600 families, with about 500 households severely affected. A resettlement plan will be prepared to elaborate displaced entitlements, the income and livelihood restoration strategy, institutional arrangements, monitoring and reporting framework, budget, and time-bound implementation schedule. The resettlement plan will be prepared following ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (2009) and government regulations. The resettlement plan will be updated and confirmed for implementation upon the completion of detailed engineering designs.
Indigenous Peoples
The project areas are inhabited by Kinh people and no ethnic minority communities are affected by the project or among the beneficiaries. In line with the SPS and available information, the project is "Category C" for indigenous peoples.
