Summary of Environmental and Social Issues

The Project will cause adverse impacts on the change in the feeding and resting grounds for the gray cranes, and increase soil erosion. These impacts are being mitigated through implementing of the action plan for gray crane wintering grounding protection and the soil erosion control and management plan. Environmental monitoring program will be undertaken for ensuring adverse environmental impacts were mitigated to acceptable levels.
The Project will require both permanent and temporary land acquisition and relocation of houses and structures. These adverse impacts will be mitigated by redistribution of land and by cash compensation to affected people. External monitoring will be conducted to ensure there were no outstanding resettlement issues and affected people are not worst off after resettlement.
