Highlights – Board Meeting of 30 January 2019


The above-mentioned report presents the findings of the verification of compliance of the Sendou Coal Project in Senegal. It discloses that the project did not fully comply with the Bank safeguard policies, notably the Involuntary Resettlement Policy and the Environmental Assessment Procedures for private sector operations. The report thus presents a series of measures aimed at repairing the damage caused to the people and the environment, and aligning the project with the Bank policies and procedures. The Board took note of Management's response and the revised Action Plan to address the issues raised. It also took note of the field mission planned by the Management team to better understand the situation and take the additional measures necessary to ensure the compliance of the project.
