According to the Bank's website, this project finances the construction of a twin pipe tunnel in Kobija Glave and connection road to the tunnel (on the 1st Transversal road); and a dual carriage way at the end of the Sarajevo bypass road (on the 9th Transversal road).
Land acquisition, predominantly of privately-owned land, will be carried out on the 1st Transversal road and 13 temporary commercial structures on municipal land on the 9th Transversal road will be affected, which will result in some physical and economic displacement.
The technical cooperation associated with this project includes: (i) a resettlement framework for the Canton; (ii) technical, economic and environmental due diligence; and (iii) advanced procurement support.
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.
