Brazil - Additional Financing for the Acre Social And Economic Inclusion And Sustainable Development Project : environmental assessment report - executive summary (English)

This is a summary of the revised version of the Environmental Assessment (EA) and the standalone frameworks to deal with Indigenous Peoples and Involuntary Resettlement issues of the Acre Social and Economic Inclusion Project (PROACRE), which was adjusted to reflect lessons learned from implementation of the parent project and to address new activities under the additional financing operation. This report identifies the project potential impacts and respective mitigation measures, in compliance with the World Bank Safeguard Policy OP/BP 4.01. The revised EA is based on (1) an updated analysis of the regulatory and institutional framework for natural resource management and sanitation infrastructure in the State of Acre; (2) the revised scope of the additional financing operation; (3) inputs from government representatives and local technicians; and (4) public consultations on the revised report held in the four isolated municipalities (Marechal Thaumaturgo, Jordao, Porto Walter, and Santa Rosa do Purus) which are the focus areas for the new project activities in environmental sanitation. Public consultations had the participation of local stakeholders including Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), community associations, indigenous groups, environmental specialists, and governmental organizations. The draft EA report was made available to participants prior to the consultation events. The final version of the revised report is composed of eight sections and seven annexes: (a) project description; (b) World Bank safeguards triggered by the project; (c) consultation process; (d) Legal framework; (e) state's institutional capacity and structure for environmental management; (f) environmental management plan; (g) conditions for Environmental Management Plan (EMP) implementation; (h) costs of EMP implementation; and the annexes (i) forest management in the State of Acre; (ii) integrated pest management plan; (iii) main social issues; (iv) indigenous peoples framework; (v) involuntary resettlement framework; (vi) environmental and social manual for civil works; and (vii) social intervention plan.
