- The Tonga Energy Road Map (TERM) Institutional and Regulatory Framework Strengthening Project (P131250 funded by the World Bank) has two components. Component 2, ‘Preparing TPL for Renewable Energy Supply’ (the Project), will assist Tonga Power Ltd (the Company) and the Government of the Kingdom of Tonga (GOT) in efforts to maximize renewable energy penetration levels and reduce the fuel consumption of the existing diesel power plants.
- This is the Environment Management Plan (EMP) prepared for the line construction and operation on Tongatapu Island proposed under the Project. Based on GOT’s law and WB’s World Bank’s (WB’s) Safeguard Policy OP4.01 Environmental Assessment, the proposed Project is categorized as environmental Category ‘B’, impacts are site specific and readily mitigated. This EMP meets the requirements of the Tonga’s Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Act 2003 and complies with the WB’s Safeguard Policies. The scope of this EMP is limited to the sites of the proposed interventions.
