Nigeria - Erosion and Watershed Management Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 12) : Environmental and social management plan, final report for Ajali Water Works gully erosion site, Enugu State (English)

The objective of the Erosion and Watershed Management Project for Nigeria is to restore degraded lands and reduce longer-term erosion vulnerability in targeted areas. Negative measures include: increased traffic; air and noise emissions; solid wastes generation and handling; effluents; use of natural resources; earth movements such as landslides, earth flow, mud flow, etc; occupational and public health issues; biodiversity loss, endangered and exotic species; and flooding. Mitigation measures include: a) proper disposal of construction spoil and any hazardous waste will be stored in areas clearly designated and labelled; b) providing complimentary livelihood (promoting alternative means of income (which is sustainable and adaptable for each community); c) ensure that the air quality levels are constantly monitored which can be obtained from relevant local air pollution control agencies or metrology units in the states; d) roadway runoff will not be placed directly into watercourses but allowed to flow over grassed or pervious pavements in order to permit the settling out of fine materials; and e) ensure that all road signs are completed with speed limits zones and traffic signs in place.
