This document sets the policy and procedural framework for the mini-grid based renewable energy systems in off-grid areas under the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation Power System Expansion Project in Nepal and describes the strategy to be followed in defining different Indigenous Peoples Plan types fitting the degree of impact intensity and relative vulnerability of affected communities.

This component is being structured in a sector approach where small scale subprojects will be added after the board approval. The basic objective and principle upon which subprojects are to be selected is to exclude indigenous peoples groups while selecting the subprojects. This indigenous peoples planning framework outlines how projects will be selected and screened and how it will ensure that indigenous peoples are excluded in the subproject selection.
