The Social and Environmental Impact Assessment documents (SEIA) completed by CMSC contains a summary of the baseline conditions, the social and biophysical environmental impact assessment and the associated management and monitoring plans.

The SEIA documents were prepared by Eritrean and international specialist environmental and social consultants.

The SEIA demonstrates the low environmental impact nature of the Colluli Potash Project due to its remote and barren setting and identifies significant beneficial social impacts. Risks that are identified are mitigated through the management and monitoring plans.

Under the AFC Subscription Agreement, the SEIA is currently being updated to assure full compliance with the Equator Principals (EPs), International Finance Corporation Performance Standards (IFC PSs), IFC Guidance, IFC Environmental, Social, Health and Safety Guidelines, Sector Specific Guidelines and National laws and regulations (collectively, the Lender Standards).
