The main objective of this RAP is to ensure that the land acquisition and resettlement activities are fulfilled, and that the standards of living of all categories of persons affected by the project will be improve or at least restored after land acquisition and resettlement. Some of the negative impacts of the project and their mitigation measures are: completing the primary wastewater and storm-water collection network and transfer infrastructure in a large developing area of the city (Changshanyuan) thereby facilitating the achievement of near 100 percent connection in that area. Procuring a wastewater treatment and sludge management facility that will provide appropriate wastewater and sludge treatment for the service area. To the south of the project area lies the village of Hetang, with an attractive townscape and architecture. Further to the south and part of the area's rehabilitation is a proposed lake beside the Xiangjiang River that will consolidate existing smaller water bodies into a fish farm. More specifically, the construction of the corridor component will greatly improve the capacity of flood control along the Xiangjiang River, reducing damage and losses from flooding, and provide protection for people's lives and their properties. Moreover, tourists will have better access to the cultural heritage sites of historical figures and scenery in the region by improve landscaping and environment along the Xiangjiang River. The Zhaoshan Scenic area component will improve the environment for tourism of the CZT region; attract more tourists and bring in additional revenue for the local government. It will also benefit local communities through increase employment opportunities and growth in related industries such as souvenirs, handicrafts, entertainment, and catering. In order to minimize the impacts of LAR on the local social economy, the plan of Zhaoshan Scenic area component should be modified and optimized, and demonstration of special technique is needed to reduce the project construction land acquisition and relocation, lower project cost and facilitate the construction.
