Georgia - Empowering Poor Communities and Micro-Entrepreneurs in the Georgia Tourism Sector Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 21) : Environmental and social screening report for arrangement of tourist information signs and picnic spots in Baghdati and Khoni municipalities (English)

The development objective of the Empowering Poor Communities and Micro-Entrepreneurs in the Georgia Tourism Sector Project for Georgia is to generate employment and increase household incomes for poor and vulnerable communities in the Kakheti and Imereti regions by supporting them to: (i) start and grow micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises in the tourism sector, and (ii) implement small works for the conservation and maintenance of cultural heritage sites. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: waste collection and disposal pathways and sites will be identified for all major waste types expected from demolition and construction activities; mineral construction and demolition wastes will be separated from general refuse, organic, liquid and chemical wastes by on-site sorting and stored in appropriate containers; construction waste will be collected and disposed properly by licensed collectors; construction noise will be limited to restricted times agreed to in the permit; During operations the engine covers of generators, air compressors and other powered mechanical equipment shall be closed, and equipment placed as far away from residential areas as possible; if the building is a designated historic structure, very close to such a structure, or located in a designated historic district, notification shall be made and approvals/permits be obtained from local authorities and all construction activities planned and carried out in line with local and national legislation; it shall be ensured that provisions are put in place so that artifacts or other possible ‘chance finds’ encountered in excavation or construction are noted and registered, responsible officials contacted, and works activities delayed or modified to account for such finds; all recognized natural habitats, wetlands and protected areas in the immediate vicinity of the activity will not be damaged or exploited, all staff will be strictly prohibited from hunting, foraging, logging or other damaging activities; Active traffic management by trained and visible staff at the site, if required for safe and convenient passage for the public; and ensuring safe and continuous access to office facilities, shops and residences during renovation activities, if the buildings stay open for the public.
