The project area is not adjacent to or within any environmental sensitive area. The physical activity is limited to rehabilitation of existing irrigation facilities, and building a new sedimentation pond. Site-specific environmental impacts are expected during construction and operation. An initial environmental assessment will re-confirm whether environment category B will be maintained.
