This environmental management framework (EMF) provides general policies, guidelines, and procedures to be integrated into the implementation of all "subprojects" under the Primary Education Development Program III (PEDP3) in Bangladesh. It ensures that neither the infrastructure, both in terms of needs nor quality at primary schools, nor the environment is compromised through the program intervention. The specific objectives of this EMF are to outline a framework for environmental screening procedures and methodologies for the "subprojects" to be financed under the project in accordance to the Government of Bangladesh, World Bank and ADB's Safeguard policies/rules; and specify appropriate roles and responsibilities to carryout environmental screening, monitoring and reporting related to "subprojects".
