Our Ease with IFC Performance Standards, Equator principles, and Sectoral EHS Guidelines

In several projects in Bangladesh EQMS has had opportunity to use the IFC Performance Standards in combination with applicable national environmental and social legislation, for project seeking IFC or Equator Bank Funding, We have recently worked for IFC as well as some international banks and venture capital funds like Citigroup, HSBC, DutchBangla Bank, IDLC, Standard Chartered, DEG, FMO etc who are signatories of the Equator Principles and thus the IFC Performance Standards, on projects which they were proposing to finance. We have also worked with ADB, World Bank guidelines on large infrastructure projects funded by them including power plant, road, water pipeline etc. Including we have advised Bangladeshi corporate group like SUMMIT, NWPGCL, EGCB, APCL, PRAN, BSRM, BENGAL, DBL etc. on alignment the environmental and social performance of their projects/ operations to the requirement of the IFC, ADB and DEG Performance Standards.

EQMS’ Strengths in undertake Environmental and Social Audit for Power Plant

EQMS has successfully completed a number of Environmental and Social audit and preparation and implementation of Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) for projects in the private sector as well as public sector. We understand issues that emerge during construction, operation and decommissioning of a mining, power and infrastructure projects and associated facilities and also the challenges in addressing them. We therefore have the capability and experience to evaluate the adequacy of impact assessment and procedures for managing them.

18.       Climate Change and Disaster Management

 

Climate Change is a critical development issue for Bangladesh. The geographic location and geo-morphological conditions of Bangladesh have made the country one of the most vulnerable ones to climate change, particularly to Sea Level Rise. Bangladesh is situated at the interface of two different environments, with the Bay of Bengal to the south and the Himalayas to the north. This peculiar geography of Bangladesh causes not only life-giving monsoons but also catastrophic ravages of natural disasters, to which now are added climate change and SLR. The country has a very low and flat topography, except the northeast and southeast regions. About 10% of the country is hardly 1(one) meter above the mean sea level (MSL), and one-third is under tidal excursions.

The climate (and variability) change shall impact all spheres of life and livelihoods of millions in Bangladesh in the following sector:

·         Agriculture sector;

·         Fisheries Sector;

·         Food Security;

·         Water sector:

·         Health Sector;

·         Infrastructure;

·         Vulnerable groups; and

·         Forestry and biodiversity;

The poorer section and marginalized community will be most affected. Climate change and variability threats achieving goal of Bangladesh Poverty reduction strategy (PRS) 

EQMS has lot of experience in Climate Change and Mitigation, Climate Change and Adaptation, Climate resilience and Disaster Management Project.

EQMS has printed a book “Floods of Bangladesh: Influence by Climate Change and Variability” on climate change and flood which has been taught in different national and international universities in graduate & post graduate level.

 

EQMS has done Climate-resilient municipal infrastructure, strengthen institutional capacity, local governance, public awareness, drainage, water supply, sanitation, cyclone shelters, solid waste management, bus terminal, port development and slum improvement projects.

21.       Solid Waste Management

 

The rapid urbanization has resulted in most of the urban local bodies, that are mandated to provide urban health and environment related services which includes solid waste management, facing a severe strain in keeping up with the increased demand on its infrastructural facilities and urban services. The urban local bodies do not have the requisite technical, institutional and financial capacities to address such a worsening situation of solid waste management due to rapid urbanization. EQMS give the following level consultancy services for Solid Waste Management –

·         Municipal Solid water (MSW) management study in City Corporation, Upazila and Pourashavas level;

·         Determination of the sources, quantities, characteristics and components/ physical waste composition of MSW in the selected study area;

·         Collection and analysis of data on existing solid waste management –

o   Equipment Inventory

o   Facility Inventory

o   Collection Service Level Assessment

o   Waste Collection Point Assessment

·         Investigation of solid waste disposal systems in different study level;

·         Developing baseline study for landfill site including acquisition and resettlement

·         Assessment of performance and opportunities for the public private partnerships in MSWM

Identification of priorities for sector reform and investment

EQMS has done a good number of projects on solid waste management (SWM) in Bangladesh and outside of Bangladesh. These projects are national policy based, community based waste management including baseline analysis and industrial pollution management based.

EQMS has printed a book “Urban Solid Waste Management: Social Impacts and Implication” on Solid waste management which has been taught in different universities in graduate level.

 

The following are the EQMS’ project experiences in Solid Waste Management-
