Nepal - Additional Financing for the Second Poverty Alleviation Fund (PAF) Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 5) : PAF environmental guidelines (English)

The objective of the Additional Financing for the Second Poverty Alleviation Fund (PAF) Project for Nepal is to improve living conditions, livelihoods and empowerment among the rural poor, with particular attention to groups that have traditionally been excluded by reasons of gender, ethnicity, caste and location. Negative measures include: soil erosion, water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, waste management, ecology, and pest management. Mitigation measures include: a) the bird's pen and its surrounding should be cleaned regularly. Lime should be added at places where some residual waste is left to prevent odour; b) bird pen should be located farthest possible from the neighbor's house to make the noise of birds more acceptable; c) bird's waste should not be stored or composted near the source of water, children's playground or near schools; d) the tank used for wetting the raw material should be lined with concrete and surface should be punned to prevent water seepage to nearby aquifers; and e) chemical processing unit for processing the raw material should be located at a minimum distance of 50 meters from the water sources used for drinking by humans, and should be downstream of these sources.
