    The resettlement implementation agency of the Project is relatively busy. The

    IAs, land acquisition and demolition office, PMO and other units are affected by the

    tasks of various projects. The workload is heavy, the pressure is high, and the number

    of staffing is limited. The personnel of the PMO and the land acquisition office are

    transferred and adjusted. Although the resettlement organization is relatively complete

    and has defined the tasks of the agencies at various levels, due to inadequate work

    matching, the new personnel would need some time to be familiar with their duties

    and responsibilities. However, this period is critical for the resettlement activities,

    which somehow affects the resettlement implementation progress of the Project.

    3. Monitoring and Evaluation on Resettlement Implementation

    3.1 Construction progress

    Road network and infrastructure subproject: Contract T-C01 of Dongsun road

    has completed the bidding process for construction contractor and construction

    supervisor, i.e. The construction contractor is Jiangxi Geological Engineering (Group)

    Co., and the construction supervisor is Guangxi Bagui Engineering Consultants Co.

    Ltd. This Contract was started in June 2016, and by now in Dongsun bridge, the

    Contract has completed the foundation works of 14 piles, reinforcement preparation

    works of No.2 pile foundation. In terms of disbursement, the Contract has received

    the first payment (advance) of RMB18.54 million, including RMB14.83 million of

    ADB loan. Due to the problem of land acquisition, the construction of the Contract

    was suspended during the period from September 2016 to July 2017, and was

    retrieved in August 2017 for the construction preparation of road subgrade and bridge

    construction. Due to the slow progress of land acquisition and house demolition,

    which could not provide with continuous construction sites for construction, as of

    February 28, 2018, the Contract was still suspended.

    The River rehabilitation subproject: The preliminary work, namely “treatment of black and odorous water” has already begun. By now, the sludge of the river bed have been dredged, and thus construction of waste water treatment station and

    greening will be conducted in the next stage.

    3.2 Resettlement Progress

    3.2.1 Acquisition of State-owned Land

    According to the RP, Dongsun road. Dongsun bridge and old bridge demolition

    contract (T-C01) will occupy 112.06 mu of state-owned land, of which, 26.95 mu of

    state-owned industrial land and 40.92 mu of residential land. The river rehabilitation

    subproject will not occupy state-owned land.

    The state-owned land to be acquired is used as the resettlement site. The

    acquisition of state-owned land within the range of land use of the Project involves

    about 20 state-owned units and enterprises. As of February 28, 2018, totally 64.1 mu

    of state-owned land had been acquired for Dongsun Road, Dongsun Road Bridge and

    the old bridge demolition contract (T-C01) (Guangxi Jiayi Paper Mill). And 62.63

    mu of state-owned land is required to be requisitioned for resettlement. Land

    acquisition has not yet been completed. The main reasons are: the issue of

    compensation for the land attachments of the 34.75 mu of resettlement sites approved

    in 2016 has not be resolved, and so the land acquisition has not been completed yet. In

    the next stage, the government of Youjiang District intends to take legal measures to

    solve this problem and expedite the progress of land acquisition. Within the

    construction redline, about 121 mu of state-owned land of Baise Mineral Group has

    not been acquired, which requires a leading institution to coordinate the LA

  • Guangxi Guoye Project Management Consultation Company Ltd.

    12

    institutions or working group to launch the land acquisition process with the

    Company.

    3.2.2 Acquisition of Collective Land

    The LA Office of Land Resources Administration Bureau of Youjiang District is

    responsible for acquisition of collective land. According to the RP, T-C01 subproject

    (Dongsun road, Dongsun bridge& demolition of existing bridge) needs to require

    173.02 mu of collective land, respectively 116.20 mu of forest land and 56.83 mu of

    construction land. The collective land required by the subproject belong to those

    collective land of village groups, without direct impacts on APs. The river

    rehabilitation subproject needs to acquire totally 312.61 mu of collective land,

    including 17.56 mu of forest land, 23.27 mu of public construction land, 84.96 mu of

    non-irrigated land, 86.42 mu of vegetable land and 100.4 mu of idle land, directly

    affecting 187 households with 650 persons.

    As of February 28, 2018, totally 157.6792 mu of collectively had been acquired,

    respectively: (i) T-C01 subproject acquired 17.3204 mu and 35.405 mu of collective

    land respectively from Dongsun No.4 Group and No.5 Group, and the compensations

    had been paid to the village groups and will be further distributed after the villagers’ representatives meetings; (ii) R-C01 subproject acquired 16.2458 mu and 88.7080 mu

    respectively from Dongsun No.2 Group and No.4 Group, and the compensations had

    been paid to the village groups and will be further distributed after the villagers’ representatives meetings.

    Currently, there are still some disputes on land boundaries between Dongsun

    No.2 Group, No.3 Group and the Thermal Power Plant, which are under coordination

    by the relevant land acquisition department. Some villagers demanded the

    government further acquire their remaining land. However, due to the lack of clear

    source of funds for this purpose, the acquisition could not be completed. Currently,

    Youjiang District Resettlement Working Group is actively coordinating this issue. In

    addition, due to the change of the head of some village groups, the progress of signing

    the land acquisition agreement was affected.

    3.2.3 Demolition of Citizens' Residential Houses and Resettlement

    According to the original RP, the displaced township citizens by the Project will

    be relocated in the resettlement houses northern to Huaxin Power Plan. The housing

    resettlement of this Project involves the provision and deployment of housing reform

    houses, self-fund raising houses and commercial houses.

    As of February 28, 2018, the Resettlement Office had preliminarily selected five

    residential areas, totally over 1700 apartments, as the sources of resettlement houses

    for this Project, respectively in Chengshi Garden (282 apartments), Xiangmihu Lake

    (144 apartments), Block A (471 apartments) and Block B (788 apartments) of

    Guang’an Park. These apartments are adequate to relocate the displaced households of the Project. At the current stage, the drawings for the area to be expropriated have

    been completed, and the on-site survey and evaluation of ground attachments have

    been also completed. According to the data provided by the IA, the citizens’ residential houses to be demolished by T-C01 subproject and the river rehabilitation

    subproject are: 100 households, dormitory building of Guangxi Jiayi Paper Mill; 1

    dormitory building of Baise Nitrogenous Fertilizer Factory (red-brick buildings

    built in 60’s and 70’s of the last century); 30 households, residential building of Baise Mineral Group; 21 households, residential houses of Electrical Machinery Factory

    of Baise Mining Bureau; 1 residential building of mix-structure of Baise

    BaiseCheyuan Repair Factory; 7 households, residential building of Dongsun Police

    building, Dongsun Post Office of (without land and house certificates).

    According to an on-site visit by an external monitoring team, most residents are

    very supportive of this Project. As long as the resettlement housing is implemented,

    they will actively cooperate with the Project in land acquisition and house demolition.

    3.2.4 Demolition of the Houses Built on Collectively Land and Resettlement

    According to the RP, the T-C01 subproject of Dongsun road, Dongsun bridge and

    old bridge demolition needs to demolish 8117.73㎡ of houses on collective land,

    respectively 5490.04 ㎡ of brick concrete structure,1244.22 ㎡ of brick-wood

    structure,1383.47㎡ of simple structure, directly affecting 33 households with 119

    persons, of which 94 persons belong to Zhuang.

    According to the site verification by the external monitoring team in the No.1

  • Guangxi Guoye Project Management Consultation Company Ltd.

    18

    reporting period, the Urban Planning Commission agreed via No.1 Meeting of 2016

    that the land C-29-01 in Dongsun area will be used as the relocating site for the

    displaced people affected by land acquisition and house demolition in Dongsun area.

    The relocating site needed for Dongsun road improvement project shall be arranged in

    a unified way within this land block (as shown in Figure 3-12, Figure 3-13). By now,

    the redline map has been completed, with a proposed land use area of about 34.75 mu.

    It was found that, the IA has formulated two compensation options for resettlement

    based on the relevant policies and the urban planning of Baise City, respectively

    house-site reconstruction and monetary compensation. For such, the Municipal

    Government has issued Approval of Resettlement Schemes on House Demolition for

    Dongsun Road Improvement Project of Baise City (Ref. BZH[2015]229) to guide the

    process of relocating resettlement. The relocating resettlement site is located in the

    northwest of Dongsun area, adopting the method of "one household one building",

    unified planning and self-construction. Within the specified time, those APs who

    signed the demolition agreement first would have the priority in choosing house site.

    The demolition of the houses are compensated as per the evaluated replacement

    cost. The amount of compensation for the APs are determined based on the market

    evaluation (excluding house site compensation), which shall be used by the APs to

    build the new houses on the relocating site assigned by the government according to

    the unified planning. The IA is responsible for providing infrastructure for the

    relocating sites such as power supply, water supply, road, land leveling, drainage and

    sewage etc. The APs are required to build the houses by themselves within the

    specified period according to the unified planning and requirements.

    According to the site investigation and measurement, as of 28 February 2018, the

    selected 34.75 mu of relocating site was found to be unable to resettle the displaced

    households, and thus additional relocating site is needed. By now the boundary line

    map has been determined, approximately 30mu, and the scheme for land reservation

    has not been submitted to the government for approval, for which, Baise Land

    Reserves Center is currently expediting the approving process. The acquisition of

    resettlement sites has not been completed due to the problem of compensation for

    ground attachments. Although the land ownership certificate for the 34.75 mu of

    resettlement sites was registered in the name of Baise Nitrogenous Fertilizer

    Factory, however, the land actually belongs to Baise Electric Power Company who

    has leased out the land to Baise Renhe Scientific Cement Products Factory for many

    years. In 2017, Baise Electric Power Company cooperated with the Project and

    noticed the company to demolish the ground attachments. The company agreed to

    cooperate with the Project, however required the government to make a total

    compensation of about RMB 6 million for the ground attachments. Now, the

    government intends to resolve the problem via legal approach.

    Houses on the collective land needed to be demolished by T-C01 and river

    rehabilitation subprojects are: villager’s self-built buildings of 35 households, staff self-built buildings of 21 households of Baise Mineral Group. According to the

    survey by the external monitoring team, the 35 village households will actively

    cooperate in house demolition if the relocating sites are resolved and the

    compensation rates are reasonable. However, the 21 households of Baise Mineral

    Group are not satisfied with the proposed relocating site and hope to re-plan the

    relocating site. The LA working group intends to further consult the resettlement

    willingness of the APs and negotiate the new resettlement scheme.

    According to the RP, T-C01 subproject will involve 17 enterprises and units,

    demolish 18534.62㎡ of houses, respectively 6114.72㎡ of brick concrete structure,

    2994.55㎡ of brick-wood structure, 7727.2㎡ of steel structure and 1698.15㎡ of

    simple structure. The river rehabilitation subproject has no demolition of

    non-residential houses in towns.

    According to the external monitoring, as of February 28, 2018, the T-C01

    subproject needs to resettle about 20 enterprises and institutions, respectively Qinzhou

    shall be compensated at one time with money. These enterprises may reconstruct

    nearby or in other places according to their needs, and the government shall provide

    with necessary support. The IA shall also make compensation for the production or

    business interruption losses according to the market evaluation.

    For the workers affected by house demolition, the affected enterprises have

    worked out the corresponding resettlement schemes. For example, the affected

    workers of the Nitrogenous Fertilizer Factory will be relocated in the planned shanty

  • Guangxi Guoye Project Management Consultation Company Ltd.

    24

    town reconstruction project of Baise City, and the Factory itself has promised to

    re-employ all of its previous workers at the salaries no less than before when the

    normal operation of the Factory is retrieved. As for those workers who are unwilling

    to work in the previous enterprises, the Human Resources and Social Security Bureau

    of Youjiang District will provide with free employment information and

    recommendation for those willing to work until their full employment. It is

    understood that, because Dongsun area is adjacent to the downtown of Baise City

    where the business is prosperous and will offer a lot of job opportunities, the affected

    workers do not worry about losing their jobs or income sources if their enterprises are

    demolished. They can quickly find similar jobs nearby.

    3.2.6 Temporary Land Occupation

    As of February 28, 2018, land acquisition had no involvement of temporary

    land occupation.

    3.2.7 Impacts on Ground Attachments

    As of February 28, 2018, T-C01 subproject and river rehabilitation project had

    totally acquired 64.1mu of state-owned land and 157.68mu of collective land.

    However, the quantity of affected ground attachments have not been counted, which

    will be detailed in the next external monitoring report.

    3.2.8 Impacts on the vulnerable groups

    According to the RP, the disabled, the households enjoying the five guarantees,

    the female-headed households and the households of minimum living safeguard

    system (MLSS) are classified as the vulnerable groups. No vulnerable groups were

    found in Dongsun community at that time.

    The site survey conducted by the external monitoring team in the No.1 reporting

    period found two households of vulnerable groups in Dongsun community,

    respectively He Jiefei and Wei Caiying who have lost the labor capacity due to

    physical disability and live in Dongsun No.5 group. The PMO, the IA and the local

    governments pay special attention to the resettlement of the vulnerable groups. In

    addition to the livelihood and production restoration as planned in the project

    implementation, these vulnerable groups shall be given more assistance. The

    resettlement budget of the project reserves RMB 987,000 of funds as the assistance to

    the vulnerable groups. The following measures shall be taken.

    (1) The government and the IA will provide RMB 3000 to each vulnerable

    household as the financial difficulties subsidies to help them restore their livelihood

    and production.

    (2) Two family members of each vulnerable household, at least one female

    member, will get the opportunities of technical training. These households will have

    the priority in getting jobs in project construction and be provided with relevant

    information of job opportunities.

    (3) Those people who have lost their labor capacity will be guaranteed by the

    social security system and receive pension given by the government.

    According to the external monitoring, as of February 28, 2018, in addition to the

    2 vulnerable households in Dongsun Community, in the building of 21 households for

  • Guangxi Guoye Project Management Consultation Company Ltd.

    25

    the workers of Baise Electrical Machinery Factory, there were 13 special poverty

    households who were mostly of the elderly people depending on odd jobs for their

    living, and the water and electricity charges were borne by the Factory. Baise

    Hengjian Foods Industrial Company Group (Dongsun Foods Station of Baise Foods

    Company) had 1 special poverty household having the housing problem. The PMO,

    the IA and the local governments pay special attention to the resettlement of the

    vulnerable groups. According to the policies, the relevant institutions will mobilize

    necessary funds to solve the living problems of the vulnerable groups.

    According to the RP, the occupation of state-owned land in this project belong to

    state-owned industrial land, residential land in industrial zone and the existing roads

    and rivers. According to Land Grading and Standard Land Price in the Urban Area of

    Baise City as attached to the document of Notice of the Municipal Government of

    Baise City on Implementing the New Results of Land Grading and Standard Land

    Price in Urban Area of Baise City (Ref. BZF[2011]34), the standard prices for

    state-owned industrial land and residential land are respectively RMB 123,300/mu

    and RMB 466,700/mu. The relevant departments of the Land Resources

    Administration Bureau of Youjiang District will make compensation to the land users.

    minorities had not been started.

    3.6 Evaluation

    From the above analysis, the external monitoring agency has the following

    findings:

    1 Because the land acquisition and house demolition have not been completed,

    which cannot provide continuous construction site for the contractors, currently, the

    construction in Contract T-C01 is suspended. In the river rehabilitation subproject, the

    preliminary work of “treatment of black and odorous water” has already begun, and most of the rest works have completed the design bidding. No construction has

    been started.

    2 The T-C01 subproject has respectively acquired 17.3204 mu and 35.405 mu

    of collective land from Dongsun No.4 Group and No.5 Group, for which the land

    compensations have been paid. The R-C01 subproject has respectively acquired

    16.2458 mu and 88.7080 mu of land from Dongsun No.2 Group and No.4 Group, for

    which the land compensations have been paid. The progresses of land acquisition and

    house demolition are relatively slow, which requires a leading institution to organize

    and coordinate the LA working group, affected enterprises and units to launch the

    activities of land acquisition, house demolition and compensation.

    3 The Project Working Group needs to further investigate the resettlement

    willingness of the affected units and individual, expedite the acquisition of the

    resettlement sites and the enlarged land acquisition, thus further provide construction

    sites for the contractors.

    4 The procedures of payment of resettlement funds are open and transparent,

    but need to strengthen the follow-up and monitoring of the resettlement funds.

    4. Public Participation and Grievance Redress

    4.1 Public Participation.

    According to the site survey by the monitoring group, the resettlement agencies

    of Dongsun road and Dongsun bridge subproject were found to basically observe the

    relevant regulations and procedures of ADB and the government during land

    acquisition, house demolition and resettlement.

    1 Pre-examination of land use and approval were disclosed to the public on

    bulletin.

    2 The APs participate in the investigation, measurement and registration before

    land acquisition.

    3 The APs participate in the public hearings and in negotiating the

    compensation and resettlement schemes. The agreed compensation schemes for land

    acquisition and house demolition are submitted to the higher authorities for approval.

    4 After approval of the land use application, the Announcement of Land

    Acquisition is disclosed to the public. The medias of Internet and newspaper are used

    to introduce the construction contents of the project, publicize the laws and

    regulations relevant to land acquisition.

    5 Organize citizens' meeting in the community affected by land acquisition and

    house demolition, and introduce the relevant laws, regulations and policies for land

    acquisition and house demolition to the APs.

    6 Disclose the compensation schemes for land acquisition and house

    demolition, and further solicit the public opinions.

    7 After approval of the compensation schemes for land acquisition and house

    demolition, all kinds of compensations and resettlement are in place according to the

    schemes.

    8 The construction land is handed over for use, and the activities of land

    acquisition, house demolition and relocation are completed.

    4.2 Complaints and grievances.

    It is found that the means for accepting complaints and grievance have been established in

    this Project. The relevant institutions shall accept the complaints and grievance lodged by APs free

    of charges. The reasonable charges as incurred shall be covered by the contingency of the project. During the whole process of project construction, these grievance procedures remain

    valid so that the APs may deal with relevant issues. The above means of grievance

    redress shall be announced in the public meetings and in the resettlement information

    booklet. The APs shall be informed of their rights for grievance and appeal. At the

    same time, the procedure for appeal and grievance shall be published through media

    among the affected people. As shown in Table 4-1.
