Cabo Verde - Porto Inglês And Palmeria Ports Expansion And Modernisation Project – ESIA Summary
This document is a summary of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) of the Porto Inglês and Palmeira Ports Modernisation and Expansion Project in Cabo Verde. It covers the works executed in these ports as well as the ancillary infrastructure (see project description for details). An ESIA as well as an Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) were prepared by Motaengil in English in 2016 for the expansion of Palmeira Port (phases 1 and 2) and another ESIA was prepared by Consulmar in Portuguese in August 2017 for the Maio Port. Following comments from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment (MAE) in December 2017, an addendum was prepared for the Maio Port ESIA and validated by the MAE in February 2018. The MAE requested no additional national requirements for the Palmeira Port.
