Telecommunication projects are not specifically listed in EU Directive 97/11/EC as requiring Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). However, the Bank will require the preparation of an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for the marine, littoral and terrestrial environment affected by the ACE branch to Mauritania to insure that correct cable routing decisions and appropriate mitigation measures are adopted. Details will be assessed by the Bank during appraisal.
The EIB will review the procurement decisions taken by the promoter and at the ACE cable levels in order to assess whether their procurement decisions are in the best interest of the project (on technical and cost terms), are in respect of legal conditions in Mauritania and comply with EIB procurement rules.
