This Semi-Annual Social Safeguards Monitoring Report for Coral Reef Rehabilitation and Management: Coral Triangle Initiative Project (INO-COREMAP-CTI) of Nusa Penida, Gili Matra and Gili Balu covers the period from January to June 2022. This report aims to ensure that no adverse impacts occur on the community due to the development of the sub-project. The method used in this monitoring social safeguards report is primary data collection through interviews, surveys, field visits, public consultations, grievance reports, desk study and weekly reports of supervisory development consultants in each sub-project location. The overall project is categorized as “C” for Involuntary Resettlement impact and “B” for Indigenous Peoples impact as per ADB Safeguard Policy Statement.
The involuntary resettlement impact was recategorized during the implementation phase from January to June 2022 due to no impact on land acquisition in each subproject location. In project implementation, partners are assisted by site coordinators at each project location to establish good relations with local governments, communities and relevant stakeholders who are in direct contact with project activities so that all forms of negative social impacts can be avoided and minimized by conducting regular consultations. In development, to date, considering the sub-projects, so far, no land acquisition or resettlement has been involved in the project. However, the project would report if it encountered any cases of rehabilitation/resettlement during the construction phase.
