Aligning Feasibility Study for Forest Programme IV with Sustainability Guidelines of KfW

Detailed description of project:

AHT and Hatfield recently completed a Feasibility Study for the preparation of the Indonesian-German Forestry Programme IV in Sulawesi. The proposed programme will support enhanced forest and national park management while simultaneously improving land use planning in the Mamasa watershed and the newly gazetted Gunung Gandang Dewata National Park. An important objective of the proposed project is to reduce sedimentation of the Bakaru and Poko reservoirs and related detrimental effects to the Bakaru Hydropower Station in the Mamasa watershed.

The objective of this study was to complement the draft Feasibility Study for FP IV with the requirement for Environmental and Social Safeguards of the newly issued Sustainability Guideline of KfW. 

Type of services provided:

In this study, AHT applied Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD) to anticipate and appraise any foreseeable impacts and to mitigate risks, project measures could have on the environment as well as on existing social  and climatic conditions. During the assignment, AHT established:

  • Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF);
  • Indigenous Peoples Planning Framework (IPPF);
  • Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF).

These frameworks largely echo the World Bank’s operational policies.  This Feasibility Study was one of the first studies to abide by the KfW’s Sustainability Guideline, which was issued in April 2016.
