|Abstract: ||This Environment Impact Assessment is an evaluation of the potential environmental, socieconomic
and natural impacts for the development of 80 housing units at Goidhoo, Baa
Atoll. This EIA is prepared in order to meet the requirements of Clause 5 of the
Environmental Protection and Preservation Act of the Maldives to assess the impacts of
proposed development at B. Goidhoo.
The primary objective of the project is part of the Government commitment to provide
affordable housing to all the people of the Maldives. The total area of the development is
approximately 184,800 square feets (17,168 sqm) and the size of a housing plot is 1707
square feets. Each housing unit would consist of 3‐4 bedrooms, a sitting room, dining room,
2 toilets, laundry and a small backyard and a well to provide water for domestic use.
This report as considered the impacts the project could have on the environment. It is found
that a major impact would be due to the waste produced during construction. However, the
impact would only be for the project duration and mitigation measures for this and other
impacts are also provided. Another high impact is anticipated on the social environment. If
the progress of any delays could be shared with the public, this impact could be minimized.
Improvement in the local economy of the island and improved livelihood are seen as
positive benefits of the project.|
