Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Technical Support to the National Environmental Assessment Programme for Industrial Sites and Environmental Services (PESISE). It aims to contribute to improving the living conditions of the population by promoting low ecological footprint industrial development and combating the effects of climate change in Gabon. The technical support will help in the preparation of a National Programme for Environmental Assessment of Industrial Sites and Environmental Services (PESISE), which falls under the operationalization of the Industrial Gabon pillar of PSGE 2025. It will allow the Bank to support Gabon in its reform of the business climate to facilitate private sector development conditions, meeting its goal of ensuring sustainable development with low ecological footprint, and increasing its eligibility for the Clean Development Mechanism. The Bank’s assistance will help in particular to: (i) enhance prospects for inclusive and green development and improve the employability of unemployed youths; (ii) develop the knowledge and capacities of operators to determine the strategic orientations for industrial sector development; (iii) promote institutional synergies at various levels and support the reform and institutional improvement processes; and (iv) rehabilitate industrial sites and repair the social and environmental damage caused by inappropriate industrial development.
