India: MFF - Himachal Pradesh Clean Energy Development Investment Program -Tranche 2

Sovereign Project | 41627-033

Summary

Tranche 2 investments will include the final contract package for the 111 MW Sawra Kuddu project that was not included in Tranche 1, consisting of certain civil works (diversion barrage, power intake and desanding arrangements). Harnessing this hydropower is vital to meet all in-state electricity demand by providng affordable, reliable power to its residents, as the state currently meets only about 50% of its power demand through its own power generating capacity. Harnessing this hydropower will also enable the export of excess power to the rest of the country for the benefit of poorer and power deficient states. Himachal Pradesh's focus on clean energy development will provide jobs to state residents and will furher the country's goal of meeting its energy through clean, indigenous sources.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects HPPCL as implementing agency is responsible for undertaking subprojects in accordance with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) covering the project, and for implementing the Environmental Management Plans (EMPs) in accordance with the ADB Environment Policy (2002) and reports on environmental compliance to ADB on a bi-annual basis. A Social and Environmental Management Unit has been set up within the PMU.
Involuntary Resettlement In the Sawra Kuddu subproject, land acquisition is significant, with 45.75 hectares and 165 households affected.
