This new guidance note from the Inter-American Development Bank "assumes that there is or will be an identified project sponsor or proponent responsible for project planning and implementation, and that a financing institution such as the IDB will provide financial and technical support. Both borrower and lender have requirements and complementary roles and responsibilities related to how social issues should be addressed in the project. Section I of the note summarizes international good practice, and focuses on the borrower’s role and responsibilities. This part is intended for those responsible for undertaking an SIA process, whether they be a government agency, consultants, or others. Section II focuses on the lender’s role. It contains a detailed discussion of relevant aspects of IDB’s policies, procedures and requirements during a typical project cycle.

The note is structured around ten key elements, which should be embedded in an SIA process
in projects of moderate to high risk, scale, and complexity. However, the note stresses
that these elements should not be applied mechanically or as a blueprint. The nature and
setting of each project is different, and the SIA process should be adapted and applied in a
flexible manner."
