The IEE assessed the environmental impacts of the project road and prescribed environmental protection and mitigation measures.
Involuntary Resettlement The Project does not involve any major land acquisition, or involuntary resettlement. The EA prepared a land acquisition and resettlement plan (LARP) following ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS), Kazakhstan laws and regulations, and LARF.
Indigenous Peoples The Project does not trigger safeguards for and requirements from indigenous peoples under ADB's SPS and no indigenous development plan is required.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
