The new World Bank Environmental and Social Framework (ESF) is live!
05 October 2018
Washington, North America
As of October 1, 2018, the ESF applies to all new World Bank investment project financing.
"The ESF enables the World Bank and Borrowers to better manage environmental and social risks of projects and to improve development outcomes. It offers broad and systematic coverage of environmental and social risks. It makes important advances in areas such as transparency, non-discrimination, public participation, and accountability—including expanded roles for grievance mechanisms. It brings the World Bank’s environmental and social protections into closer harmony with those of other development institutions." Another major change is the broadening of the definition of Indigenous Peoples (ESS7), which now clearly includes "Sub-Saharan African Historically Underserved Traditional Local Communities," “indigenous ethnic minorities,” “aboriginals,” “hill tribes,” “vulnerable and marginalized groups,” “minority nationalities,” “scheduled tribes,” “first nations” or “tribal groups”.
