First Draft of Environmental and Social Framework

The World Bank is preparing a new Environmental and Social Framework. The Board has authorized the release of a proposal document for consultation purposes to seek feedback on its content. It has not endorsed this content, and the Committee on Development Effectiveness and the Board will consider the proposal after consultations. Click "Your Feedback" to submit comments.

On July 30, 2014 the World Bank Board’s Executive Committee on Development Effectiveness (CODE) authorized the release of a proposal document for consultation purposes to seek feedback on its content. It has not endorsed the content of the draft, and CODE and the Board will consider the proposed document following such consultations. A background paper was developed for CODE’s discussion of the proposed framework, which can be accessed here. Also see our press release for more information. For questions and comments, please email us. Please also take a look at our Questions & Answers. The World Bank is currently developing a detailed consultation schedule. A tentative schedule of country consultations is posted here. If you need more information, please contact the safeguards review team at safeguardconsult@worldbank.org.

People and the environment are at the center of all our work. Through the revision of our environmental and social safeguard policies, the World Bank is ramping up its standards to ensure the delivery of an environmental and social framework which is more efficient and comprehensive; includes a strengthened approach to the management of environmental and social risks that will support sustainable development through standards that are clear to those impacted by the projects we finance, those who implement, and those holding us to account.

In late 2012 the World Bank launched a multi-phased process to review and update its environmental and social safeguard policies. The multi-stage review, supported by several periods of global consultations with stakeholders, is being undertaken in response to the need to better address environmental and social issues that countries face today, to deliver better environmental and social outcomes in the projects and programs the Bank supports, to ensure treatment and coverage of environmental and social impacts and risks, to strengthen the ability to monitoring and supervising actual impacts on people and the environment, and to better meet the varied needs of borrowers, and help strengthen country frameworks and institutions to deliver sustainable results on the ground. 

The World Bank’s safeguard policies are at the center of our efforts to protect people and the environment, and to achieve our goals to end extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity in a sustainable manner in our partner countries.  The first draft proposal of a new Environment and Social Framework has been prepared with the aim to deliver efficiently on the two goals and to support more sustainable use of resources, promote social inclusion, discourage discrimination, help address new development challenges, and be mindful of the economic burdens development can place on future generations.
