According to the Bank's website, this project provides financing to the government of the Republic of Kosovo to extend an existing industrial zone in the municipality of Drenas. This will entail the construction of roads and their connection to the main road, a water supply network within the project area, the construction of electrical grids and their connection with the main existing electrical grid. This project also encompasses the construction of a gas network, the construction of a sewage system for the treatment of waste and industrial waters and the construction of a wastewater treatment plant.
The government is yet to complete the Environmental and Social Questionnaire.
The goal of the project is to facilitate investment in Drenas by easing issues of land ownership, expensive land purchase price and lack of infrastructure.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at email@example.com or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en. You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/project-finance/project-complaint-mechanism.html.
