The parameter which must be considered for inclusion in the monitoring report are discussed in .3.4 Construction issues of this report and in more detail in ADB Environmental Guidelines Annex III/1 Environmental Constraints for Projects Involving Major Construction Operations. Temporary erosion control plans and project development phasing plans should be included in the construction monitoring plan. There should be regular reporting to the Responsible Authority during the construction phase.
Monitoring management and training during operations
Each of the industries established on an industrial estate will require its own monitoring program which will have been incorporated in the Operational Approval to set up the industry. The sort of program required by individual industries is described in the Guidelines for “Major chemical and manufacturing plants” and appropriate monitoring and management procedures are described for manufacturing plants in terms of air, water, solid waste, noise and control measures.
The management of the industrial estate has the ongoing responsibility of overseeing the monitoring activity of the industries on site. The industrial estate will also have it own monitoring plan which will have been included as a condition of the EIA approval. The management of the estate will have to work closely with the relevant Government Agencies. The agencies concerned will be:
the staff of the EPA, NWFP for example intend to station Environmental Protection Officers (EPO’s) at each of the industrial estates in the Province,
industrial development officers in the Ministry responsible for industry in the Province - such officers are based at District level,
the Provincial office responsible for occupational health and safety measures on the estate and particularly the factory inspector.
local government services responsible for safety measures and emergency procedures
Emergency response capacity can be strengthened by providing equipment and training. The reader is referred to the section in World Bank EIA Guidelines on “Industrial Hazard Management”.
