Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Initial Environmental Examinations (IEE) for the identified subprojects and an Environmental Assessment and Review Framework (EARF) that provides the steps to be taken for subprojects to be selected during the project implementation stage have been prepared and posted to the web.
Involuntary Resettlement Construction of new reservoirs, weirs and channels may require land acquisition. Land required for each subproject will be few hectares and most of which expected to be barren communal land. The land acquisition and resettlement framework (LARF) for the Project and land acquisition and resettlement plan (LARP) for each core subproject have been prepared and posted to the web.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders of the project are the households that will benefit from additional land brought under irrigation and improved access and more reliable irrigation water. Negative effects are not envisaged. The beneficiaries have been consulted during the project design.
During Project Implementation Beneficiaries will be mobilized through social mobilization process and community organizations (COs) will be formed. These will participate in identification, planning, design and implementation of the subprojects.
