Burkina Faso - Urban Water Sector Project : additional financing - environmental assessment : Burkina Faso - Le Projet Sectoriel Eau en Milieu Urbain : financement additionnel - évaluation environnementale : cadre de gestion environnementale et sociale (French)

The Urban Water Sector Project (PSEU) of Burkina Faso and the additional activities financed on a contribution from the World Bank will contribute to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in the field of potable water and sanitation in urban areas, through improved access to potable water and promoting onsite wastewater treatment. The realization of developments provided for within the framework of the Urban Water Sector Project and the additional activities may generate important impacts on the environment, if appropriate and preliminary measures for environmental management are not taken into account in the project comprehensive planning process. The PSEU will mainly have positive impacts on the social, economic and environmental plans. However, the negative environmental impacts identified, most of which are temporary, will be taken in consideration in the Urban Water Sector Project and the additional activities. The environmental and social negative impacts are expected to be minor and site specific, and largely outweighed by the positive outcomes in sanitation and improved quality of life. The updated ESMF provides environmental guidelines to ensure that any new activity undergoes an appropriate procedure of environmental and social screening, and then if eligible, be subject to the preparation and approval of an ESIA/ESMP prior its implementation.
