Description

This report was prepared by consultants under the Facility for Economic and Infrastructure Management project in Palau and provides a review of the environmental impact of existing public infrastructure.

It also provides an assessment of the impact of potential environmental problems due to major infrastructure on livelihoods, health, the vulnerability of the poor, and vulnerable groups and identifies opportunities and constraints the environment offers for development, particularly estimating how much the environment can contribute to economic growth.
