Regional : Strengthening Safeguards Management in Southeast Asia

Sovereign Project | 52059-001

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support investment projects proposed for Asian Development Bank (ADB) financing requiring environmental and social safeguards assessments and to manage the impacts and risks related to involuntary resettlement (IR), environment, and indigenous peoples (IP) at an early stage of project preparation. During project implementation, the executing agencies oversee the application of the resettlement plan (RP), the environmental management plan (EMP), and indigenous peoples plan (IP) and oversee fulfilling other requirements as per ADB's Safeguards Policy Statement (2009). The executing agencies are also responsible for preparing periodic monitoring reports that describe progress with implementation of the safeguards actions, identify any potential compliance issues, and advise on corrective actions, if any.
