Disclosure Notice of Project Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) and Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF)

The Government of Liberia is preparing Additional Financing for the Youth Opportunities Project (YOP). Activities under the parent project (Components 1B and 2A) had triggered OP/BP 4.01 (Environmental Assessment) and OP/BP 4.12 (Involuntary Resettlement). An ESMF and an RPF were consequently prepared and disclosed to meet the requirements of the triggered policies.

The safeguards instruments for the parent project will be disclosed for the Additional Financing. The Additional Financing is for cost overrun therefore no update to the parent project ESMF and RPF was required. The instruments provide procedures to ensure that proposed investments under the Additional Financing are properly screened for potential environmental and social risks and impacts, and appropriate site-specific instruments prepared if required.

The disclosed safeguards instruments can be accessed from LACE’s website at http://laceonline.org or the Ministry of Youth and Sports’ website at Http://www.moys.gov.lr. Copies are also available at LACE’s central office:
