APP-002932 - The Environmental Clearance Certificate, for the construction of DR3650: Epinga to Onakalunga and DR4113: Endola to Eembo, located in Ohangwena Region, Namibia.

Roads Authority, intends on obtaining an extension to their Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) for the construction of DR3650: Epinga to Onakalunga and DR4113: Endola to Eembo, located in Ohangwena Region. As part of the requirements by the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism, RA is expected to submit an updated EMP to reflect the extension. The construction of these gravel roads has been identified by RA to improve the access to rural areas and will contribute to poverty alleviation, develop agriculture as well as positively impact on the rural population through improved access to health, education and markets. RA was issued the Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) for the above-mentioned project on 27 April 2015, for a validity period until 27 April 2018. However, the construction activities for the project only commenced in June 2021, due to various delays in the tender process to appoint a contractor for the construction. The contracts and agreements have therefore, been finalized; hence, the commencement of the construction activities and request for the ECC renewal/extension
