Senegal - Dakar Diamniadio Road Project : social and environmental assessment (Vol. 4) : Evaluation environnementale approfondie du site de Keur Massar (French)

This social and environmental assessment for the Senegal Dakar Diamniadio Road Project, which constructs a main communication axle between Dakar and Diamniadio, describes expected social and environmental risks associated with project activities. Negative impacts connected to the road maintenance subproject include involuntary resettlement, enormous quantities of waste generated, environmental pollution fro solid and liquid waste, deforestation, traffic disruption and traffic accidents, noise and vibrations from equipment operation, air pollution from dust and gaseous emissions, accidental leakage of hydrocarbons and other hazardous materials, unauthorized entry to the site, erosion and flooding, increased incidence of HIV/AIDS, and sedimentation and soil compaction. Added negative impacts associated with the water supply subcomponent are increased incidence of water-borne diseases; contamination of water sources, including underground water pollution and soil pollution; and increased water use and conflicts over water distributions. The electrification subcomponent may impose risks from excavation, the risk of electrocution, alteration of the countryside from electric lines, increased need for energy consumption, and an increased presence of insects in dwellings. Attendant to the school facilities subcomponent are impacts to public health from an increased need for toilet facilities. Biomedical wastes from the health center construction subcomponent pose risks of contamination and disease spread. Other major potential impacts recorded in the report pertain to the subcomponents for sanitation and business facilities.
