Agencies implementing both internally funded and development partner financed projects in Kiribati have limited experience in applying country safeguards system (CSS) and development partners' safeguard policies and this has led to inconsistency and weaknesses in implementing safeguards. There is a need to strengthen implementation of Kiribati's CSS on environment, particularly in the areas of preparing, reviewing and implementing environment assessment documents, issuance of licenses with appropriate conditions and environmental management documents and linking approved documents with the bidding/contract documents, and implementing the environmental management plan (EMP).
