JSC Nenskra Hydro is pleased to announce a vacancy for the position of Community Investment and Livelihood Restoration Program Officer.

Definition of Role:

The CIP/LRP Officer is responsible for the implementation of the Community Investment Program (CIP) and Livelihood Restoration Program (LRP) of the Nenskra Hydropower Project which were reviewed and approved by the Lenders Consortium, involving EBRD, EIB, ADB, AIIB, KDB, and K-Sure. The CIP and the LRP are designed to be in line with the national and international safeguards standards of the Lenders.

The community investment and livelihood restoration programs are implemented under the overall Integrated Social Responsibility (CSR) Plan of the Project Sponsor. In this regard, the implementation of the CIP and LRP social development projects should be closely linked to the social development key focus areas identified in the Integrated CSR Plan and aligned with the commitments set forth in the Project Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) and the Livelihood Restoration Plan (LRP) approved by the Lenders Group, unless a revision or update of these documents are mandated.

Performance of Tasks:

The CIP/LRP Officer shall be based full-time onsite performing the tasks at the project areas located in the Nenskra and Nakra Valleys.

The CIP/LRP Officer has direct reporting responsibility to the CSR Manager (Supervisor) and the E&S Team Leader.

The CIP/LRP Officer is responsible for reviewing the CIP and LRP documents, and updating such documents according to the project development progress and changes. The initial CIP and LRP documents were prepared after the “community needs assessment” was carried out by a third-party consultant in 2015 (CIP) and when the Supplementary E&S Studies were finalized in 2017 (LALRP).

In December 2019, the LALRP Implementation Progress Report was prepared and submitted to the Lenders describing accomplishments and status of land acquisition and livelihood restoration programs. In February 2020, an LALRP Addendum 1 covering additional areas not defined in 2017 was drafted, and submitted to the Lenders for review. The livelihood programs are defined and described in detail in these documents – 2017 LALRP, 2019 LALRP Implementation Progress Report, and the 2020 LALRP Addendum 1. Additional LALRP addendum documents will be developed throughout the project development cycle.

The CIP program was committed in the 2017 ESMP, however due to changing site conditions (i.e. mudflow event in July 2018 in Nenskra Valley) the community needs shifted its focus into rehabilitation of damaged roads and bridges, and river bank reinforcement (infrastructure rehabilitation). Consequently, the community demanded for lease of equipment from the company to perform small infrastructure improvement and rehabilitation, which was addressed through the “Mechanization Project” of the company. With the company`s genuine desire to support the local communities formalize ownership of the land properties under private land registration, the company invested into performing land survey and registration assistance to government authorities through the “Land Survey and Registration Project”. Furthermore, due to increasing anticipation of the local communities of local employment opportunities when the EPC contractor is officially appointed, the company partially took over the obligation by the Contractor to perform “Vocational Skills Training Program”. A number of local community members participated in the theoretical and practical training on heavy equipment machineries operation.
