Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The project is expected to (i) reduce Franco da Rocha municipality’s consumption of electricity and greenhouse gas emissions, including CO2, through the use of energy-efficient lights and advanced street lighting management systems; (ii) expand street lighting services to underserved communities in the municipality; (iii) reduce safety risks related to poorly lit streets; (iv) improve lighting quality and lower the frequency of service interruptions; (v) improve infrastructure for the illumination grid, modernizing it and integrating features as previously developed in smart cities; and (vi) promote overall urban improvements.

People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

 The key environmental & social (E&S) issues and risks associated with this project include: the company’s
E&S management capacity (including identification and management of the sub-projects E&S risks for both
construction and operations), labor and working conditions, occupational health and safety (OHS), fire
protection and emergency response and stakeholder engagement.
IFC’s review concluded that the potential adverse E&S risks and impacts of this project are considered few in
number, and potentially readily mitigated allied with implementation of good international industry practice.
This is therefore a Category B project according to IFC’s Policy on Environmental and Social Sustainability
(2012).

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
