Burkina Faso - Disaster Risk Management and Climate Adaptation Project : environmental and social management framework (Francês)

The overall objectives of the Disaster and Risk Management (DRM) project are to develop and strengthen the institutional capacities involved in national and local disaster management (technical agencies of the national RDM platform in Mali, Burkina and Senegal, civil society organizations and local communities) for the implementation of field activities. It is also a program of innovation and promotion of disaster risk reduction based on a precautionary approach through a culture of safety. It intends to implement the priorities of the Hyogo Framework, the technical adaptation to climate change and provisions relating to environmental protection, and to consolidate reforms in the governance of disaster management. For Burkina Faso, four (4) intervention areas were identified for the project as follows: 1) Area 1: Strengthening the operation of CONASUR; 2) Area 2: Establishing an early warning system; 3) Area 3: Strengthening the capacities for response; and 4) Area 4: Investments: micro-projects for development. The environmental and social management framework (ESMF) is meant to guide project activities so that environmental and social issues are taken into account and managed throughout all the activities implemented. For this, it will identify the risks associated with various project interventions and define mitigation and management procedures and measures to be implemented under the project. The Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) is designed also as a screening mechanism for environmental and social impacts of the project investments and activities. As such, it serves as a guide in developing specific Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs) of the project, the site and environmental and social characteristics of which are still unknown. In addition, the ESMF provides a framework for monitoring and surveillance as well as institutional arrangements for implementing the program and implementing activities to mitigate adverse environmental and social impacts, to remove them or reduce them to acceptable levels. As the RDM Project is essentially a program of institutional capacity strengthening, the following areas of intervention will have no negative impacts on the biophysical and socio-economic environment: Strengthening the functioning of CONASUR (Area 1); establishing an early warning system (Area 2); Capacity Building for responses (Area 3). However, some activities (including investment/micro-projects for development) of the Area 4 below may cause adverse effects on the environment: Income Generating Activities (IGA) and social structures affected by disasters (such as schools, hospitals, etc.) to recover or strengthen. Also, this analysis will focus primarily on the investment/micro-projects for development. The environmental and social issues for the planned implementation of micro projects and investment in intervention Area 4 (Investments and micro-projects for development) are: loss of land and socio-economic activities, deforestation, pollution and nuisances; waste generation; social conflicts; accidents; risk of vandalism and frustration for non use of local labor, etc.
