Social and environmental impacts

4

Severe

Adverse impacts on people and/or environment of medium to large magnitude, spatial extent and duration more limited than critical (e.g. predictable, mostly temporary, reversible). The potential risk impacts of projects that may affect the human rights, lands, natural resources, territories, and traditional livelihoods of indigenous peoples are to be considered at a minimum potentially severe.

3

Moderate

Impacts of low magnitude, limited in scale (site-specific) and duration (temporary), can be avoided, managed and/or mitigated with relatively uncomplicated and acceptable measures.

2

Minor

Very limited impacts in terms of magnitude (e.g. small affected area, very low number of people affected) and duration (short), may be easily avoided, managed or mitigated.

1

Negligible

Negligible or no adverse impacts on communities, individuals, and/or environment.

2 . 3 C U M U L AT I V E I M PA C T S As discussed further in Section 5, the physical impacts of the Rohingya influx do not have a cumulative potential. Therefore, the Area of Influence (AoI) for the physical impacts of the Rohingya influx is limited to the direct footprint of the camps and the small buffer area around them. For impacts on ecosystems, where potential exists for cumulative impacts, the study was conducted

in a broader AoI to ensure inclusion of the relevant sources and receptors of the impacts. The AoI for the impacts on ecosystems encompasses the south part of the Cox’s Bazar District (south of Ukhia) (see Figure 1-1).
