Nepal - Grid Solar and Energy Efficiency Project : indigenous people and vulnerable community planning framework (English)

The development objectives of the Grid Solar and Energy Efficiency Project for Nepal are to: (i) increase grid power supply through installation of solar power generation facility; and (ii) improve Nepal electricity authority's (NEA's) financial performance through distribution system, loss reduction, and financial restructuring. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) implementing design-preconstruction phase before the actual project implementation to avoid potential impacts in the project design, technical specifications, and contract documentations; (2) installing solar farms on NEA property and to the extent possible encroached area will be avoided to minimize adverse social impacts; and (3) carrying out social screening in the project sites to identify any adverse social impact and presence of indigenous community.
