Regional Exchange on Good Practice of Environmental Safeguard Management: Workshop Proceedings
Good environmental safeguard practices from thirty-two case studies documenting environmental management of ADB funded projects in Central and West Asia were shared with executing and implementing agencies during two workshops in 2015.
Environmentally sustainable and inclusive growth is critically dependent upon environmental safeguards to prevent, reduce, or compensate for environmental impacts caused development projects. Good practice in environmental safeguard management during project implementation is necessary to ensure successful implementation of environmental management plans.
