Request to the EBRD’s PCM on the Nenskra hydropower project
Official document | 30 May 2018
The conclusions of the EBRD’s Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) are not guided by detailed field work and focus group research with the affected communities – indigenous Svans, nor are they based on the robust and objective analysis of existing academic opinions.
The Nenskra hydropower project fails to meet the EBRD’s own policy and Performance Requirements (PRs), especially PR 1 on Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Impacts and Issues, PR 5 on Land Acquisition, Involuntary Resettlement and Economic Displacement, PR 7 on Indigenous People, PR 8 on Cultural Heritage and PR 10 on Information Disclosure and Stakeholder Engagement.
