No negative environmental or social impacts are anticipated from the CDP. While it is not possible to carry out a definite evaluation at present, as sub-projects have not been fully defined, it is expected that sub-projects will target areas which have, to date, had a largely negative impact on the environment. Therefore, interventions will contribute positively through the promotion of more environmentally-friendly practices and through the “cleaning up” of neighbourhoods.
The project portfolio has yet to be finalised but, once it is, all components will have to comply with prevailing procurement protocols, including meeting the minimum national standards. Local practices will be checked against international and EU standards to ensure propriety and best practice.
