The Swedish government issued a framework permit for the Markbygden cluster in March 2010 based on an overarching environmental impact assessment (EIA) from 2008, covering the cumulative effects of the whole development. The complementary EIA for Phase 1, which includes this project, was issued in May 2011 and the competent authority issued the environmental permit in December 2011. The site is currently mostly used for industry related to forestry and reindeer husbandry. The potential impact on reindeer husbandry has been subject to special attention and consideration during the development phase of the project. The project will pay direct compensation to the neighbouring community and the Sami indigenous tribe, with whom an agreement on benefit-sharing has been reached based on free prior informed consent. During appraisal, compliance with the Bank's environmental and social standards will be assessed.
