Chapter 8 - Environmental management plan
This Environmental Management Plan (EMP) has been established to ensure that the project complies with the Namibian Environmental Management Act (No. 7 of 2007); and to provide a control framework for implementing the management actions described in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), during dredging. The EMP is to be submitted to the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) as part of the application to receive an Environmental Contract for the proposed project - The Recovery of Marine Phosphates from Mining Licence 170 (ML170). This framework EMP will be supplemented with the details of the relevant protocols e.g. specific measures, analysis procedures and reporting intervals. The EMP addresses dredging activities within ML170 and relevant activities of the dredging vessel during non-dredging operations.
