Tanzania - Zanzibar Secondary Education Project : environmental assessment (English)

Overall, the Tanzania - Zanzibar secondary education project is likely to have a positive impact on the environment in Zanzibar, in the short, medium and long term. Firstly, the project benefits in terms of social and environmental impacts outweigh the adverse impacts. The project will pose no direct risks to biodiversity, natural habitats and wetlands, as it will not fund activities in protected areas, national parks or wetlands. Further, out of 18 possible adverse impacts, half are short-term in manifestation and will clear once construction ends. Indeed, the bulk of impacts also have readily available means for total and effective mitigation; - out of the 9 long-term impacts, 8 are possibly reversible leaving only four fairly irreversible factors, the key of which is associated with changes in the Stone Town Architecture. The latter impact is fairly easy to mitigate since in order to fully comply with requirements of the World Convention on Heritage Sites- and preserve the integrity of Stone Town, all construction work in Stone Town will have to adhere to guidelines set by the STDCA who will also undertake routine supervision.
