Description

The Panel received the Request for Inspection on September 20, 2019. The Requesters raise concerns about the Project’s impact on biodiversity, including protected species, in protected areas in Poland and within the transboundary Odra region. They claim that the Project will increase flooding risks, that the planned river regulation is excessive and that public participation and consultation with citizens and experts were insufficient. The Requesters are concerned that earlier-abandoned work plans affecting the Międzyodrze wetland would be taken up again under this Project. They also express concern about involuntary resettlement in some locations in the Klodzko Valley and Upper Vistula and argue that the construction of dry reservoirs in the Klodzko Valley significantly interferes with the local landscape, cultural values and the integrity of some towns.
