Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects The proposed subprogram 2 will include policy reforms to strengthen Cambodia's financial sector and will have no direct impact on the environment.
Involuntary Resettlement The proposed program will not involve construction or rehabilitation, no land acquisitions will be required, and it has no potential to cause loss of assets, resources or income.
Indigenous Peoples The proposed program is intended to strengthen the overall financial sector and will have no component that will negatively impact indigenous people.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Wide stakeholder consultation during factfinding from 18-28 July 2011. Prior to that, a series of workshops with government, private sector and development partners were held to discuss the draft financial sector development strategy (FSDS) 2011-2020. The program will be designed within the approved framework of the FSDS 2011-2020.
During Project Implementation The practice for wide consultation among relevant stakeholders has continued during the implementation on the specific issues in the policy matrix.
