The dominant land use along the project road is agricultural, which is primarily for rice production. The road corridor is not within undisturbed landscapes, mangrove areas, or near environmentally-protected areas. The project will not encroach on environmentally-sensitive sites. An IEE has been prepared by the government to meet the requirements of the SPS. It was publicly disclosed in May 2014. An EMP has been prepared as part of the IEE. The EMP defines the institutional arrangements and responsibilities for its implementation and includes an environmental training program for MOC and PW to develop their capacity in environmental management. The EMP is to be incorporated into the project's road rehabilitation civil works contract documentation. A GRM has been developmed to facilitate resolution of construction-related environmental impacts.|
