Egypt - Sustainable Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Management Project : Environmental Assessment (Vol. 3) : Environmental and social impact assessment : Annexes (English)

The development objective of the Sustainable Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Management Project for Egypt is to improve the management and disposal of targeted stockpiles of obsolete pesticides, including POPs and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), in an environmentally sound manner. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) the nearest hospital or clinic should be identified and notified about the project team's activities in each given area, zone, or location; (2) appropriate and recommended substances should be made available for extinguishing given materials in case of fire outbreaks; (3) the fire service should develop an evacuation plan for the area around the temporary storage area to the vicinity of the ships; and (4) marine salvage will be required to rescue the containers.
