To address the environmental and social impacts identified in the project ESIAs and establish guidelines and standards for the safeguards measures to be put in place by LEC and the project contractors during both construction and operation of the project, an Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) was prepared for the Mt. Coffee Hydropower Rehabilitation Project. This document contains recommendations for detailed mitigation and monitoring activities to be carried out as part of the project’s due diligence and is available through the above link.
The ESMP for the transmission lines is included in the ESIA for the lines.
Implementation of the ESMPs was completed by early 2018 and the tasks for the operational phase handed over to LEC and its Operation, Maintenance, and Training Contractor.
