The objective of this Technical Note is to describe the necessary Bank requirements for the content and disclosure of Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs), with a focus on the particular issues related to cement plants. This Technical Note is a basic document and is designed to assist borrowers (project sponsors) in understanding what IDB requires on an ESIA for a proposed cement plant. This document is not intended to provide a complete or detailed guidance on the preparation of an ESIA, but rather the basic ESIA requirements.
