AIIB briefing on Nenskra HPP project
Briefing | 5 June 2017
The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is in the process of assessing a loan for the 280 megawatt Nenskra hydropower plant in Georgia. In March supplementary environmental and social impact assessments (ESIA) were released in order to bring the project in line with the standards of the prospective international financiers. Yet the new ESIA is ‘too little, too late’ for a project that is underlined by no strategic assessments and inadequate evaluations of social and environmental consequences.
