    Aspects environnementaux

    The hydropower project involves the creation of a reservoir with a water storage capacity greater than 10 million cubic meters. If located in the EU, the project would fall under Annex I of the EIA Directive, and is therefore subject to a mandatory EIA under the Bank's environmental policy. The national legislation also requires a mandatory EIA. The promoter has carried out comprehensive environmental studies involving public consultation. The project will not require resettlement and mitigation and compensation measures have been proposed to offset the effects on flora and fauna. These will be reviewed in detail during the appraisal with a particular focus on social impacts and the impacts on biodiversity.
