India - Bihar Kosi Flood Recovery Project : environment and social management framework (英语)

The objective of the Bihar Kosi Flood Recovery Project for India is to support the efforts of the Government of Bihar in helping communities recover from the impacts of the flood and reduce vulnerability from natural disasters by: 1) reconstruction of houses that are earthquake and flood resistant; 2) enhancing connectivity by building and repairing roads and bridges; 3) strengthening flood management capacity in Kosi Basin; and 4) building social and financial capital by expanding livelihoods opportunities. Negative impacts include: storage and use of chemicals, disposal of residual materials post treatment, natural drainage pattern due to inadequate cross drainage works, impact due to tree cutting and clearance of vegetation in some areas, road safety and increased accidents, air, water, and noise pollution. Mitigation measures include: 1) providing guidance on proper handling and storage of chemicals used for treatment of vegetative building materials and, ensure safe disposal of residual chemicals/waste post-treatment; 2) provision of the required cross and longitudinal drainage; 3) follow good/safe road design practices, provide for safety features, as necessary; 4) an environment management plan that takes care of construction stage impacts by clearly stating the pre-cautions and practices that need to be adhered to by the contractor in line with environmental regulations of the country; and 5) identification of the type and extent of tree cutting that would be required in the detailed project report (DPR). Review to check if this can be minimized through small adjustment in design.
