Ethiopia - Geothermal Sector Development Project (Vol. 2) : Environment and social impact assessment of Alalobad Tendaho Geothermal Project (Inglês)

The Geothermal Sector Development Project for Ethiopia seeks to increase geothermal electricity generation capacity of the country. The purpose of this environmental and social impact assessment is to identify and forecast the possible impacts to the environment resulting from the proposed project, the impact of the project on the surrounding community, and also to identify appropriate respective mitigation measures to minimize these adverse impacts. Negative impacts were identified in the context of the environment, such as: 1) destruction of habitat for fauna, 2) potential threats to migratory birds, 3) adverse effect of land use during the project, 4) soil erosion, 5) air and water pollution. Adverse socio-economic impacts identified include: i) land acquisition, ii) impacts on women, iii) occupational health and safety issues, iv) community health and safety issues, v) hazards or risks, and vi) sexually transmitted diseases in the labor force engaged for the project. Respective mitigation measures have also been suggested to avoid or minimize the impact of these issues.
