Sierra Leone - Rehabilitation of Basic Education Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 2) : environmental and social assessment (English)

The Rehabilitation of Basic Education Project will have national coverage, however, this environmental assessment (EA) was conducted in three districts (Kailahun, Kono, and Kambia) together with the Western Area, because those three districts were severely affected by the civil conflict; conversely, the Western Area, clearly contrasts in terms of physical damage to educational infrastructures, environmental degradation, and institutional arrangements for impact management. The environmental analysis concluded that there are no significant environmental issues related to this project, since project sites will not affect national parks, natural reserves, nor cultural heritage sites, for these were completely destroyed during the civil war. While the findings of the EA show that the project was well conceived, taking implicit consideration of environmental concerns. Mitigation measures are as follows. Construction of buildings will be in accordance with existing building codes, i.e., adequate toilet facilities will be provided with proper waste disposal systems. During construction, open pits will be installed; waste disposal sites will be selected; while landscaping, and vegetative propagation will be undertaken following construction.
