Witteveen+Bos, Grontmij Win Bagan Contract

Dutch consultancy firms Witteveen+Bos and Grontmij have been commissioned to conduct an environmental impact assessment for the Bagan river multi-purpose restoration project in Myanmar.

This project aims to improve the navigability of the Irrawaddy river near the historic city of Bagan, and to implement various measures to improve local living conditions.

The environmental impact assessment will be conducted together with local partner Wunkyin (Environment) Myanmar Cooperative.

One notable aspect of the EIA study is that Witteveen+Bos and Grontmij will consult at an early stage of the design process with the Dutch consortium of Royal HaskoningDHV/Van Oord, which is responsible for the design.

In this way, suggestions can be submitted in the preliminary design phase to help ensure a sustainable design from a social as well as environmental perspective.

The inception phase, which involved assessing the existing situation and the scope of the proposed project, has already been completed.
