Questions
 Is the Project area subject to hazards such X Project area is located in moderate damage risk zone
as earthquakes, floods, landslides, tropical w.r.t seismicity (Zone III). All civil structures have
cyclone winds, storm surges, tsunami or been designed as per relevant IS Codes
volcanic eruptions and climate changes corresponding to seismic zones.

The study area being predominantly rolling does not


have flood problem. However, flash floods occurred
sometime in district including some parts of project.
All structure have been designed for 50 yr return
period with anticipated risk of rarer flood generally of
next higher frequency i.e. 100 yr return period flood
on the designed structure.

Project Area is not vulnerable to landslides, tropical


cyclone winds, storm surges, tsunami or volcanic
eruptions. However, Many studies for the state show
that the Madhya Pradesh is tending towards
precarious situation due to climate sensitivity and
vulnerability, combined with low adaptive capacity.

The state is already suffering due to its high


dependence on mineral resources. Further the forest
and water resources in the State are facing threat
due to industrial and urban growth and being uneven
in distribution both temporally and spatially. Hence
the challenge of climate change calls for appropriate,
evidence based and coherent policy response,
followed by the adequate action that can help reduce
its vulnerability and build resilience of the various
sectors of the state in the context of climate change
impacts. (Source: Madhya Pradesh- Action Plan for
Climate Change, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh, 2013)

Appendix 3: Comparison of World Bank and GoI Ambient Air Quality Standards

A comparison between the ambient air quality requirements between the World Bank (WB)
Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) guidelines and the National Ambient Air Quality
standards (NAAQS) under the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 of GOI as
given in table below shows that the NAAQS has requirements on three more parameters (Pb,
Co and NH3) in comparison to the WB EHS. The NAAQS has differentiated standards for two
types of areas: i) industrial, residential, rural and other areas and ii) ecologically sensitive areas.
The WB EHS has guidelines values which are the required standards but allows for gradual
compliance to the guideline values through staged interim targets. Most WB EHS guideline
requirements are more stringent than NAAQS except for the NOx one year average in
ecologically sensitive areas where the NAAQS requirements are more stringent.

A comparison on noise level requirements between the WB EHS guidelines and the NAAQS

that the required levels are equal for residential, institutional and educational areas. The
NAAQS requirements for commercial areas are more stringent while the WB EHS requirement
for daytime noise in industrial area is more stringent.
