Technical Assistance on Integrated Water and Hydropower Development in the Drina River Basin Overall Summary (Inglês)

This Report compiles the key findings from multiple technical studies carried out under this TA and is structured as follows: Section A summarizes key gaps in the current practices of the DRB management with emphasis on hydropower development and the recommendations in addressing those gaps. Section B summarizes gaps in the feasibility assessment of the Buk Bijela and Foca HPPs. The utility Elektroprivreda Republike Srpske (ERS) in BiHproposed to review these projects. Section C summarizes gaps in the existing EIA documents of the Buk Bijela and Foca HPPs from the lenses of the World Bank Group (WBG) Environmental and Social Framework(ESF);guidelines on environmental and social (E&S)impacts of HPPs; and transboundary guidance per the Espoo Convention (1991), Bucharest multilateral agreement (2008), and WBG Operational Policy OP 7.50 concerning Projects on International Waterways. Section describes the social aspects of hydropower and provides an overview of a Stakeholder Engagement Framework (SEF) in the DRB to help inform social assessments. The framework has been designed to serve as a roadmap for development of specific stakeholder engagement programs or plans for prospective HPPs when the specific locations, stakeholder groups, types and technologies, and schedule of activities are known. Section E shifts the focus to describe the findings of the rehabilitation and safety requirements of two existing HPPs reviewed under this TA: the Piva HPP in Montenegro and Visegrad HPP in BiH. The utilities Elektroprivreda Crne Gore (EPCG) in Montenegro and ERS in BiH proposed these projects for this TA. The Summary Report is concluded with the overall recommendations for the next steps.
