India - Uttar Pradesh Pro-poor Tourism Development Project : environmental assessment : Environmental and social management framework (English)

The Uttar Pradesh Pro-Poor Tourism Development Project for India will improve living standards and increase income opportunities for the poor population living in and close to the primary tourism attractions of the Buddhist Circuit and the Braj-Agra Corridor. By generating improvements in basic service delivery, tourism-related infrastructure, income-generation opportunities and the general environment, there may be some disruption in the local area. Generally, the type of civil works anticipated under the project will involve demolition and new construction; provision of basic services; rehabilitation, restoration and/or maintenance of existing infrastructure, historic properties/sites and public areas; construction of new or extended facilities on existing land or historic properties/sites; adaptive reuse of historic buildings; signage and interpretation; equipment replacement/installation; public amenities; landscaping and tree plantation. Though it is envisaged that subprojects will involve very generic social issues that are manageable, there might be some subproject activities proposed in due course, that may carry a higher social risk and/or disruptions and/or impacts. The possibility of such issues arising in the subprojects sites will be identified during the subproject screening process. Negative impacts on cultural properties generally fall into the following broad categories: damage, destruction, wear, removal, burial, modification, change of use, neglect, denial of access, and desecration. If a proposed subproject presents risks to environmental, social or cultural heritage aspects of the project area, the Environmental Management Plan and Resettlement Action Plan, Gender Action Plan and Physical Cultural Resources Management Plan will include measures to prevent, mitigate or compensate negative impacts and enhance positive ones.
