FSM Sustainable Energy Department and Access Project (SEDAP)

Three safeguards instruments set out the procedures for environmental and social protection that the National Government of the Federated States of Micronesia (GoFSM) and the World Bank (Bank) have agreed to employ in the conduct of the FSM Sustainable Energy Department and Access Project (SEDAP).

The Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) provides the set of mitigations, monitoring, and institutional measures to be taken during  the implementation and operation of the SEDAP to eliminate adverse environmental and social  impacts, offset them or reduce them to acceptable levels.  The ESMP also includes the actions  needed to implement these measures.

The Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) addresses the involuntary resettlement impacts associated with the SEDAP, in particular the physical investments funded under SEDAP’s Component 2 – Increasing the share of RE and Expanding Energy Access in Chuuk, and Component 3 – Scaling-up Renewable Energy Generation in Chuuk, Yap and Kosrae.

The Environment and Social Monitoring Framework (ESMF) sets out the principles, policies and procedures for environmental and social protection covering in particular the physical investments for 2MW of Solar on Weno funded under Component 2 – Increasing the share of RE and Expanding Energy Access in Chuuk, as Sites are not known at appraisal. The impact assessment will be completed during project implementation.
