Project Description
According to IFC document, the Solomon Islands Community Benefit Sharing Pilot (CBSP) Project, supported by a grant from the Japan Social Development Fund (JSDF), aims to introduce and test an innovative approach to sharing the benefits of development projects with project communities. CBSP will be implemented in connection with the Tina River Hydropower Development Project (TRHDP), which is also under preparation. TRHDP is a high priority investment for SIG as it will contribute to a significant reduction in the cost of power and improved reliability of its supply. The objective of CBSP is to establish institutional arrangements and capacity for project communities to effectively manage benefit sharing revenues from TRHDP and improve their basic services and economic opportunities. CBSP is envisaged to consist of four components: Component 1 - Establishment of the Community Benefit Sharing Fund (CBSF) and community capacity building Component 2 - Improving community infrastructure Component 3 - Human resource development Component 4 - Project Management, Administration, Monitoring and Evaluation, and Knowledge Dissemination
