The project development objectives of the Additional Financing of the Electricity Sector Support Project of Burkina Faso are to: (i) increase access to electricity, (ii) improve the reliability of electricity supply, and (iii) improve the efficient use of energy in targeted areas. The objectives, outputs and components of the additional financing do not differ from the parent Project. Therefore the expected results remain the same. The implementation of the project activities will have both positive and negative environmental and social impacts. The negative impacts which need specific attention will occur during the operation of the power plants are related to pollution from wastes mismanagement, noises, occupational risks and safety at work, socioeconomic damages in the occurrence of accidental fire in the facilities. These negative but manageable impacts are: loss of trees on the power station sites and vegetation on the right-off-way of the grid lines; dust-induced air pollution in the project sites and vicinities during the construction, including risks of temporary increase in allergies; involuntary destruction of cultural assets in exploiting quarries and material pits; socio-economic losses and damages in case of explosion and fire during the exploitation; occupational health, security and safety for the staff. Potential social impacts include loss of land, assets and/or resources. No large and irreversible adverse impact during the project cycle was identified. An Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for each power plant and an Environmental and Social Framework (ESMF) have been prepared and consulted upon. They include appropriate technical and institutional measures.
