    I. INTRODUCTION

    A. Subproject rationale

    1. Sustainable Rural Infrastructure Development Project in Northern Mountain provinces (SRIDP) is being implemented through a sector loan from Asian Development Bank (ADB). Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) is the executing agency for the sector loan. SRIDP coverage are 15 mountainous provinces in Northern Vietnam (Bac Giang, Bac Kan, Cao Bang, Dien Bien, Ha Giang, Hoa Binh, Lai Chau, Lang Sơn, Lao Cai, Phu Tho, Son La, Thai Nguyen, Tuyen Quang, Vinh Phuc, Yen Bai).

    2. While the poverty levels throughout the country had been significantly reduced as results of development efforts; the statistics in mountain provinces above had indicate rather slow improvement during the last decade (47% in 2002, 32.3% in 2006 and 27% in 2008)1. Part of the problem is due to the inadequate access facilities, social services, and commercial opportunities. It is for this reason that GOV and ADB had pursued the SRIDP to provide sustainable access facilities in these poverty stricken mountain provinces. These infrastructures include rural roads, public markets, irrigation and water supply facilities. As a part of the SRIDP, the sub-project Upgrading pumping station of Ngo Khong I will be conducted in the area of Chau Minh commune and Mai Dinh commune, Hiep Hoa District, Bac Giang province.

    B. Sub-project Objectives

    3. The objective of the sub-project is to upgrade the pumping station of Ngo Khong I

    to ensure the drainage of flood waters affecting 1,190 ha of mostly agricultural lands

    located at Chau Minh and Mai Dinh communes.

    C. Sub project Alternatives

    4. The efforts to minimize the negative social impacts include constructing in the dry

    season, especially the canal drain water in rainy season. Taking advantage of the local

    materials to reduce transport distance, limit negative impact on environment

    5. Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) has been prepared to meet the Social

    Policy Safeguards requirements of ADB2 and GOV3. The IEE contains the following
