  • Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP):This plan outlines how the LEC and RREA will engage with stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle. This ensures transparency and incorporates community concerns during the planning and implementation phases.
  • Environmental and Social Review Summary (ESRS):This document summarizes the potential environmental and social impacts of the project. It identifies areas where the project might affect communities or the environment and proposes mitigation measures to address any potential risks.
  • Environmental and Social Commitment Plan (ESCP):This plan outlines the specific actions the LEC and RREA will take to minimize environmental and social impacts. This includes commitments to public consultations, environmental monitoring, and grievance redress mechanisms.

The public disclosure process allows Liberian citizens to learn more about the project, understand its potential environmental and social impacts, and provide feedback. This collaborative approach is crucial for ensuring the success of the project while minimizing negative consequences.

Citizens are encouraged to review the disclosed documents and participate in upcoming consultations to voice their concerns and suggestions.
