Environmental and Social Framework: Draft Guidance Notes for Borrowers

Follow the event on Twitter #ESF

The Environmental and Social Standards, which form an integral part of the World Bank’s new Environmental and Social Framework, set out requirements for borrowing countries relating to the identification, assessment, and management of environmental and social risks and impacts associated with projects financed by the Bank through Investment Project Financing (IPF). The Bank is preparing Guidance Notes for Borrowers as a resource to help explain requirements contained in the Standards and provide helpful examples. The Guidance Notes are currently open for comment and the LiveChat will focus on answering questions pertaining to the process of the comment period as well as the current substance of the notes.
