Mindful of the need to ensure that commitments are being fulfilled and that standards are being met, NNP1 Intensive has built intensive internal and external monitoring of performance into the planning of the hydropower project.
Internally, the company’s Social and Environmental Management Offices conduct constant monitoring of their work and its outcomes, using the results to adjust programming and policy. Checks on progress are also made by teams from the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment, including by the Environmental Management Units set up at provincial and district levels.
Site-specific environmental monitoring and management plans are applied at each construction site. These plans are all available on the NNP1 website, www.namngiep1.com.
A water quality monitoring program has been developed to ensure comprehensive analysis of water sources and bodies across the Project area both during the construction period and for the first few years of the operations phase.
