An initial enviromental examination of the 230 kV and 132 kV transmission lines and substations covered by Part A of the Project was conducted by PGCB. Other project components have negligible impact on the environment.
The Project does not involve significant displacement of persons. A maximum of 100 persons who are dispersed along the transmission line will be affected. A short resettlement plan was prepared based on ADB's Policy on Involuntary Resettlement. Minor rerouting of the transmission lines will be considerd during project implementation, which will further reduce the number of affected persons.
Consultations were carried out with the Executing Agencies and some of the affected persons during project preparation.
