Consultations on the Second Draft Framework Concluded

Consultations on the second draft Environmental and Social Framework concluded on March 15, 2016. Since the review process began in 2012, the World Bank team has consulted with a wide range of stakeholders from governments and implementing agencies, civil society organizations involved in advocacy and service delivery, the private sector, as well as academia and applied research institutions. The comments and recommendations received during this consultation phase will inform the third draft framework proposal. A summary of all feedback received will be made available on this website in the coming months.

The third phase of consultations on the World Bank’s second draft Environmental and Social Framework (ESF) will close on March 15, 2016. Since starting this phase of consultations on August 4, 2015, we have consulted in 21 countries across all regions. Almost all remaining consultation meetings are now confirmed and listed on the consultation website. By March 15, we will have consulted in 33 countries. If you are unable to attend a consultation meeting in person, please email your comments to safeguardconsult@worldbank.org by March 15. After consultations close, we will take into account the feedback received as we move forward with the review and update of the World Bank’s safeguard policies.

The year in review: Safeguards consultations

The World Bank has held consultations in 18 countries across all regions between August and December 2015. This is part of the third phase of one of the largest consultation efforts the Bank has undertaken. Feedback on a list of outstanding issues and on the implementation of the proposed safeguards requirements on the ground has been rich and valuable. We are closing the year with consultations in Niger and Nigeria. In early 2016 consultation events are planned for Cameroon, Rwanda, Turkey, Egypt, Vietnam, Belgium (for European constituencies), Morocco, Indonesia, Japan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Honduras. We are also working on confirming consultation dates for Brazil and the US. Consultation dates are published on this website as soon as they are confirmed.

Consultations on the Second Draft of Environmental and Social Framework

On July 1, 2015, the Committee for Development Effectiveness (CODE) of the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors authorized a 3rd phase of consultations on a revised (second) draft. At their request, the 3rd phase will focus on feasibility of applying the framework in borrowing countries and on an indicative list of issues that require discussion. Now available: an update clarifying the process and issues for consultation.

On December 8 and 9, the World Bank consulted with representatives of the Chinese government and Non-Governmental Organizations.

On December 8 and 9, the World Bank consulted with representatives of the Chinese government and Non-Governmental Organizations. Consultation participants discussed the consistency of the proposed framework with China's policies and procedures, dam safety, differentiating environmental and social assessment, forced evictions, and protections for ethnic minorities. Next stops for the review: Japan, Indonesia, and Brazil.

The proposed Environmental and Social Framework introduces FPIC and protections for peoples in voluntary isolation and pastoralists. The safeguards team is now headed to Brazil, South Africa, Bangladesh, Paraguay, and Nepal.

Matthew Bliss of Cordaid (Brussels consultation, November 10, 2014)
"Don’t drop the hot issues"

Keep working on the difficult issues—this advice comes from Matthew Bliss of Cordaid. At a consultation meeting with civil society and private sector in Brussels on November 10, he said about human rights and other politically sensitive issues: “These crucial issues need to be discussed on a regular basis. They need to stay on the agenda. If you have problems addressing these issues now in this policy review, you have to consider them again later. Don’t drop them.” Next stop: The Safeguards team will head to Oslo and Berlin for multi-stakeholder consultations on November 12-13, 2014.

Tan Thi Gia (H’Mong) sings a song wishing for the World Bank delegation’s health. Her statement: “The ethnic minorities live in poor conditions. We need more attention and investment in transport, livelihood. Many ethnic minority women in Vietnam are illiterate. They do not know about the laws on gender equality and also don’t know how to protect themselves against domestic violence.”

- an update clarifying the process and issues for discussion              

Protecting the Poor and the Environment in World Bank Investment Projects

Economic development depends in part upon providing infrastructure and facilities that improve people’s lives and expand economic opportunities. This can be a road that allows a farmer to get goods to market. It can be access to electricity so hospitals can refrigerate medicines and children can do their homework at night. It can be clean water to reduce the incidence of easily preventable water-borne diseases that kill an estimated 1,400 children every day. Governments in developing countries often turn to the World Bank to help finance such projects and we fund them because we know they can help to reduce poverty and improve living conditions.

A cornerstone of our work on investment projects is helping to ensure strong protections for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people and for the environment. The World Bank’s current policies – often called “safeguards” – were developed over the last 20 years to help identify, avoid, and minimize harms to people and the environment. These safeguards require borrowing governments to address certain environmental and social risks in order to receive Bank financing for development projects. Examples of such requirements include conducting an environmental and social impact assessment, consulting with affected communities about potential project impacts, and restoring the livelihoods of displaced people. World Bank safeguards are widely seen as an effective way to ensure that environmental and social concerns and community voices are represented in the design and implementation of our projects.

Review and Update of the World Bank's Safeguard Policies

While our current safeguard policies have served the development community well for more than two decades by protecting the environment and the world’s poor and vulnerable in World Bank investment projects, the world has changed and new and varied development demands and challenges have arisen over time. The issues our clients face have shifted dramatically, and their ability to manage them – as well as the Bank’s - has significantly increased. The World Bank is now in the process of reviewing, updating and strengthening its environmental and social policies to keep pace with the changing times.  We are committed to developing an environmental and social Framework that is better for people, the environment, and Borrowers. Our already high standards will go from strong to stronger.

The review began in 2012 with the goal to:

  • Enhance protections for the poor and the environment through modernized standards;
  • Provide inclusive access to development benefits through the introduction of a non-discrimination principle;
  • Strengthen partnerships with borrowing countries through closer cooperation and increased use of borrower frameworks; and
  • Strengthen the World Bank’s leadership through a modernized safeguards framework.

This reform touches on complex development matters, including Human Rights, climate change, and a number of social issues. Consultations on the first draft Environmental and Social Framework showed a wide range of views among shareholder governments and civil society groups. When the Committee on Development Effectiveness (CODE) of the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors discussed the second draft of the proposed Framework, consensus emerged on the overall architecture and some of the proposed provisions. However, many issues remained open. CODE authorized consultations in order to continue efforts to find solutions where views are divided. Executive Directors requested the preparation of an indicative list of outstanding issues to guide discussions throughout the consultation process.

Consultations will also focus on the feasibility to implement the proposed provisions on the ground and on the potential impact of the proposed Framework on Borrowers. Throughout consultations, the Bank will work with Borrowers to identify any additional support needed to implement the proposed provisions.

The feedback received during consultations will inform the third draft Framework and the discussions of the World Bank’s Executive Directors as the reform of the safeguard policies proceeds.

If you have comments or queries, please send them to safeguardconsult@worldbank.org. Consultation meeting dates are being confirmed. They will be posted after confirmation with the host country.
