Most development partners who work at council level for the promotion of local development are generally faced with the question of the realization of social impact studies for social micro-infrastructure because of poor knowledge of existing laws and regulations governing environmental impact notices.
The CARFAD has received funding from GIZ to support three pilot councils (Ndélélé, Bélabo and Messondo) to appropriate modalities for implementing the competence transferred to councils in achieving environmental impact notices.
After the literature review, interviews with resource people and holding meetings with stakeholders, the following results were obtained :
- the list of activities subject to the notice of environmental impact is developed for the three pilot municipalities. This list has received the opinion of the responsible departmental MINEPDED and is ready for the approval of the municipal council;
- fees to pay to the municipality by the instigator for the realization of an environmental impact notice by categories of activities and actors impact are available and ready for consideration by the municipal council ;
- different steps for implementing by the municipalities of an environmental impact notice and the role of different actors are proposed.
Following this consultation, the council’s targets have the necessary tools to implement the powers transferred on completion of the environmental impact notice, but they need that their institutional capacity and their capacity to manage the environment are further strengthened.
