Complaint

IAM: Complaints Mechanism (CM)

ID: SG/E/2018/39

Date Filed: Oct. 7, 2018

Status: Active

Description

On 8 October 2018 the Free Prior and Informed Consent (“FPIC”) and Rights Forum (“the Complainants”) sent a letter to the EIB Complaints Mechanism (EIB-CM) submitting a request for mediation regarding part of the EIB-funded 220 kV Marsyangdi Corridor high voltage transmission line and other hydropower sector development in the region. The allegations leading to the request for mediation relate to the following: 1) Lack of adequate consultation, agreement seeking and information sharing/disclosure about the project, its impacts and how each impact can be avoided, mitigated or compensated; 2) Inadequate compensation and lack of proper compensation process, benefit sharing scheme and appropriate census; 3) Lack of adequate FPIC process concerning the indigenous communities affected by the project; 4) Insufficiencies in terms of the substance and timing of the environmental and social studies performed (alleged “salami-slicing” of the studies and lack of a cumulative impact assessment). In case a collaborative resolution process is not possible or concludes without resolution of the issues, the Complainants request a compliance review.
