In 2020, the Netherlands Commission for Environmental Assessment shared an Advisory Review of the resubmitted Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) project with NEMA.
In this review, NCEA was concerned that while they had suggested a number of changes to the ESIA in a July 2019 review, these were given either partial or insufficient treatment.
They for instance noted insufficient responses to concerns on expectation management, local content and jobs, water and wetland crossings, water use, biodiversity/chimpanzees’ conservation, compensation and resettlement issues and others.
