SUSTAINABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

ENVIRONMENT and SOCIAL MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK

The Sustainable Energy Industry Development Project (SEIDP) will provide technical assistance to increase data availability and capacity in Pacific Island power utilities for renewable energy. The objective is to enhance their ability to manage renewable energy technologies in their networks and implement long-term disaster risk planning. It will be implemented by the Pacific Power Association (PPA), a non-governmental industry organisation based in Fiji representing 20 member countries.

Overall, the project is expected to have a perpetual positive impact on the social and physical environments in the Pacific. The Pacific has heavy reliance on generation from diesel fuel which is an expensive finite resource and needs to be handled, shipped, stored/distributed all of which have the potential to create substantive environmental harm, particularly in sensitive environments. Analysis of renewable energy opportunities in the Pacific will seek to reduce these costs and environmental risks.

This Environment and Social Management Framework (ESMF) sets out the principles and procedures for managing the environmental and social aspects of the project. The rationale of applying a framework is that specific details of the project activities will only be known during project implementation. The purpose of a framework is to guide the PPA and its consultants on how to screen the activities and manage any issues during implementation.

The report outlines the SEIDP project, its components, the possible environmental and social impacts and the appropriate mitigation measures. The ESMF is consistent with the laws of the Pacific Island Countries involved in the project and relevant World Bank Safeguard Policies.
