Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

The project was designed as a sector loan with environmental, involuntary and indigenous people's safeguards incorporated through frameworks. Before implementation each subproject went through a rigorous screening with REA, IEE, EIA, IPSA, IPR and SRP prepared as required. These were reviewed and approved by ADB's safeguards specialists in INRM as part of the concept approvals of subprojects. The related environmental management plans, SRPs, IPs and land acquisition were completed before award of contracts in compliance with ADB guidelines.
