Total project cost
Environmental and social categorisation, impact, and mitigation
Due diligence was undertaken by an independent consultant. This included a review of the management systems and activities of the company; an audit of the maintenance depot and an environmental analysis of the proposed investment programme. The due diligence indicates that there are no major issues but that the company needs to improve overall Environmental and Social (“E&S”) and human resources management. An Environmental and Social Action Plan (“ESAP”) has been agreed that includes the requirement to develop a Health, Safety and Environmental (“HSE”) system, standards and procedures for the business and appoint staff responsible for implementation; improve environmental and health & safety performance at the depot site; implement a traffic safety management system and training for drivers; prepare an emergency response plan; and implement a grievance procedure for workers. A Stakeholder Engagement Plan (“SEP”) has also been agreed.
Detailed plans for the redevelopment of the depot have not yet been developed, though no land acquisition is anticipated at this time. Final plans will be subject to a separate assessment once they are finalised and any mitigation measures required will be included in an updated ESAP.
The following technical co-operation (“TC”) assignments are envisaged as part of this project::
• Environmental and social due diligence (EUR 40,000, financed by the Bank’s own resources).
• Technical due diligence to determine the technical specifications of the bus units (EUR 50,000, financed by the Bank’s own resources).
• Assistance to the Project Implementation Unit for tendering and supervision of works (the estimated cost of the assignment is up to EUR 74,000, to be financed by an international donor).
• Preparation of a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme (“FOPIP”) (the estimated cost of the assignment is up to EUR 250,000, to be financed by an international donor).
• Preparation of a Public Service Contract (EUR 50,000, financed by the EBRD Shareholder Special Fund (“SSF”) under an existing framework agreement).
• Preparation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (“SUMP”) (the estimated cost of this assignment is up to EUR 275,000, to be financed by an international donor).
