A Look at Environmental and Social Risk Management in Projects Financed by the IDB

The IDB has a strong commitment to sustainability through its policies, standards, and guidelines for social and environmental management. Each policy fosters sustainability through a two-pronged approach: first, to improve the results of Bank-financed projects by looking at social and environmental concerns, and second, to minimize the negative impacts of such risks in areas such as:

Environment

Work and labor conditions

Community health and safety

Involuntary resettlement

Indigenous peoples

Gender equality

This certified course is directed towards officials of government agencies that implement projects financed by the Inter-American Development Bank, project coordinators, environmental specialists, social specialists, consultants, construction firms and subcontractors involved in the execution of projects, supervisors and auditors of works and other public officials involved in the preparation and execution of projects, civil society, and anyone interested in sustainable development.

This course is offered by the Inter-American Institute for Economic and Social Development (INDES) of the Inter-American Development Bank within the framework of the Project Learning Academy.
