In 2015, the Nenskra Hydropower Project submitted the final Environmental & Social Impact Assessment Report (ESIA) to the Government of Georgia (GoG) as part of the national environmental permitting process. The 2015 ESIA report has been prepared by Gamma Consulting Limited (a Georgian consultant), based on field investigations undertaken in 2011 and 2014 and following the public consultations meetings held in May 2015. The Environmental Permit was awarded by the Environmental Authorities in October 2015.
Since then, several International Financial Institutions (the Lenders) have been approached to finance the Project. To ensure compliance with their Environmental and Social (E&S) policies, the Lenders have recommended that a number of Supplementary E&S Studies be undertaken to supplement the existing 2015 ESIA report. The links below provide access to the ten studies prepared in 2016 and released in 2017 for public review. The 2015 ESIA Report is included in the Annexes to Vol.2 - Project Definition.
In addition to the consultation activities that have already occurred, community members and other stakeholders can provide comments on the Project using the following contact detail.
