Environmental and Social Safeguards Evaluation

Mar 2019
The evaluation seeks to provide the Boards and Managements with information on how effective the IDBG’s safeguards systems have been in preventing, managing, and mitigating the adverse E&S impacts of IDBG-financed operations and in building client capacity to manage E&S impacts and risks. The evaluation covers IDB’s safeguards work from 2011, when the most recent safeguards policy became operational, and IDB Invest’s safeguards work from September 2013, when IDB Invest’s E&S sustainability policy entered into force. It also reviews the contribution of the Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) to the functioning of the IDBG’s safeguards systems since the adoption of the new MICI policy in 2014.
