Congo, Democratic Republic of - Pro-Routes Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 8) : Analyse des images satellitaires Landsat 2001 - 2002 (French)

The project development objective (PDO) is to reinforce the operational capacity of Congolese structures in charge of the road network, to enable the re-opening of principal road links and their continued maintenance. The environmental and social assessment (EA) document aims to identify the physical, environmental and socio-economic aspects together with the assessment of the potential impacts of road reconstruction, material used in reconstruction, disposal of debris and its likely impacts on drainage, water quality and soil. The EA document includes suitable mitigation measures for alleviating the adverse environmental impacts. Some of the recommendations and mitigation measures included in the EA document are : adequate protection of the health of the work force and the local population; compensation for damage and destruction, in particular of sacred and cultural findings; open channels for communication and information for project affected peoples (PAPs); promote a participatory community management of natural resources, biodiversity conservation essential for the well-being of local populations; support to local structures (universities, research institutions, NGOs) to promote action/ research towards innovative agricultural best practices leading to adaptation and diversification, into coffee, oil-palm, cacao, etc.; conduct capacity building programs for local nature conservation and environmental institutions for the protection and better management of natural resources, fill the deficiencies in the existing laws for the protection of the environment, in the long term this will allow the diffusion of environmental best practices, so that people and professionals (in fishing, hunting, farming and forestry) can themselves progressively take charge of protection of their natural environment.
