Description

On September 19, 2016, the Inspection Panel received a second Request for Inspection related to the World Bank-financed Uganda Private Power Generation (Bujagali) Project, the Water Management and Development Project (WMDP) and the Energy for Rural Transformation Phase III (ERT-III) Project. The first Request pertaining to these projects was received on June 20, 2016. The complainants raised concerns about potential social and environmental harm caused by the construction of the Isimba Dam reservoir and the consequent flooding of the Kalagala Offset Area (KOA). While the World Bank is not financing the dam, the complainants alleged the flooding will undermine the management of protected natural resources in the KOA, which is a requirement of an indemnity agreement between the International Development Association and the Government of Uganda as part of the Bujagali project. The Panel registered both complaints in September 2016, and informed the Board that since they raised similar issues the Panel would process them jointly.
