Advisory Review - Bangladesh

Détails significatifs

The Netherlands Embassy in Bangladesh is planning to contribute financially to the implementation of the Main River Flood and Bank Erosion Risk Management Programme. The aim of this program is to sustain incomes and livelihoods of people living along selected sections of the three main rivers in Bangladesh (Jamuna, Padma, Ganges). The programme consists of three phases.

An EIA has been conducted for the first phase. The NCEA was requested to execute a desk review of the following documents:

  • Draft EIA Report;
  • Final EIA Report, Annex I: Social Gender Equity Strategy & Action Plan;
  • Final EIA Report: Feasibility study (sections on social and gender issues of this report have been reviewed).

The NCEA reviewed these documents and issued an advisory review to present its conclusions. Main findings were that most of the essential information necessary for phase 1 of the programme is included in the EIA report and the Gender Action Plan (GAP), but that some important information is not covered. This information can however be included in follow-up studies that have been planned, such as the SEA.
