Abstract

Consultations with affected populations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are becoming standard practice in environment assessments (EAs). The Bank recognized this fact by incorporating public consultation in its 1989 Operational Directive (revised in 1991 as OD 4.01 and to be released as OP 4.01) on EA. This directive requires public consultations shortly after the EA category for a project has been assigned, and, once a draft EA report has been prepared. For "meaningful consultation" to take place, the Borrower should share relevant information about the project and its potential impacts with affected populations and local NGOs. This Dissemination Note describes the results of a 1995 review by ASTEN and ASTHR of experience in the East and South Asia regions in implementing these public consultation and information dissemination aspects of the EA process. The review looked at fourteen projects requiring EAs in order to capture lessons for improving Bank and Borrower performance in this area.
