Confirmatory application regarding disclosure of results of the interservice consultation for Ombla hydropower plant
Official document | 29 February 2012
The EBRD’s Board of Directors approved the Ombla hyrdopower plant project on 22 November 2011, before an assessment had been carried out regarding the project’s impact on a proposed Natura 2000 site. In addition the project is being carried out on the basis of an Environmental Impact Assessment study from
1999, whose content may not fully reflect the requirements of EU legislation in this area.
The interservice consultation document to which Bankwatch has been denied access is key to understanding how the EC enforced its obligation to ensure EU law implementation through its action in the EBRD board.
