The Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) has reportedly signed a contract with Nigeria-based Environmental Resources Managers Limited (ERML) concerning the drawing up of an Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) and a Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) for the landing of a high speed internet connection in Liberia. An LTA press release confirmed the World Bank is providing funding of USD25.6 million for the Africa Coast to Europe (ACE)-Liberia Cable landing project, through the West Africa Regional Communications Infrastructure Programme (WARCIP). The ESMF and RPF are designed to provide information on the environmental and social impact of the ACE landing project.
