Myanmar - Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 2) : Environmental and social impact assessment and management plan (English)

The development objective of the Ayeyarwady Integrated River Basin Management Project for Myanmar is to contribute to the development of integrated river basin management on the Ayeyarwady river, and, in the event of an eligible crisis or emergency, to provide immediate and effective response to said eligible crisis or emergency. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) during dredging operations warning signs and flags will be visible to ships and boats so they can avoid the project area; (2) the dredge master will ensure that all the dredged materials are disposed at the specific site so that water flows can bring those to the downstream concave bank in quickly; and (3) the monitoring program will include community consultation for Directorate of Water Resources and Improvement of River Systems (DWIR) to better understand the impacts on possible erosion caused by the groyne.
