External Compliance Monitoring Group

External Compliance Monitoring Group (ECMG)

The Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for the pipeline project has strict legally binding requirements and specifications. Compliance with this plan and monitoring are very important to the World Bank Group to ensure that the obligations under the EMP are met. To assist both the World Bank Group and the Lender Group an External Compliance Monitoring Group (consultant firm D'Appolonia S.p.A. of Italy) was hired to monitor and evaluate the performance of COTCO,TOTCO, the Upstream Operator (Esso Chad), and the two Governments in implementing their environmental commitments. The ECMG made at least four site visits every year until the project completion date, and confers with the project companies' representatives, the affected populations, NGOs, and other parties responsible for environmental compliance monitoring. All ECMG reports are public documents.
