Complaint

IAM: Complaints Mechanism (CM)

ID: SG/E/2020/02

Date Filed: Feb. 11, 2020

Status: Active

Description

On 11 February 2020, the Directly Inundation Affected Peoples Collective Rights Protection Committee representing a group of project-affected households sent a letter to the EIB-CM requesting mediation to resolve concerns regarding the EIB-funded Nepal Tanahu Hydropower Project. The main allegations leading to the request for mediation of the complainants are: 1) Lack of adequate information sharing, meaningful consultation, and participation; 2) incomplete survey of land and inadequate and discriminatory form and amount of compensation; 3) Negative impact on their access to natural resources and livelihoods as well as on ancestral lands, cultural sites, and traditional practices (as Magar indigenous people) — all of which were not sufficiently taken into account. The complainants also sent their complaint to the Office of the Special Project Facilitator (OSPF) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
