Rwanda - Sustainable Water and Sanitation Program (Additional Financing) – ESMF Summary


The Government of Rwanda’s (GoR) Sustainable Water and Sanitation Program is being considered for Additional Financing (AF) by the African Development Bank. In line with the Bank’s Integrated Safeguard System (ISS) requirements, the AF has been categorized as 2 because the potential environmental and social impacts are not significant in magnitude, localized in scope and can be managed by a robust Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP). To comply with the ISS requirements for category 2 programmatic based investments, an Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) has been developed by the GoR to guide the implementation of the additional subproject component activities under the Program. An environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) and resettlement action plan (RAP) were prepared for the initial Program and publicly disclosed on the Bank website on 23rd June 2017.
