Environmental and Social Safeguards for Donor Funded Projects

Course Overview 

Environmental and social sustainability, including climate change resilience, is fundamental to the achievement of development outcomes and must be systematically mainstreamed into development programs. Environmental and social screening and assessment processes for projects have now become standard practice in development cooperation and are usually required by national regulatory frameworks and multilateral and bilateral donors. 

There is therefore need to strengthen environmental and social sustainability, including climate resilience. Potential adverse impacts and risks need to be avoided or minimized, and where possible mitigated. Governments need to demonstrate to Development Partners and stakeholders that we have the appropriate safeguard measures in place for managing donor funded projects.
