The environmental and social context of the Latin American and Caribbean region has evolved since the safeguards policies of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) were developed more than 15 years ago. The Environmental and Social Policy Framework modernizes many of the requirements of these safeguards policies into a comprehensive and consolidated framework that better responds to the environmental and social challenges facing our countries: social inequality, climate change, and the depletion of natural capital. Moreover, the new Framework emerges as an opportunity to improve, update, and harmonize environmental and social standards within the IDB group and with other multilateral organizations, so that the borrower must always abide by similar requirements. The IDB’s Environmental and Social Performance Standard 6 recognizes that the protection and conservation of biodiversity, the maintenance of ecosystem services, and the sustainable management of living natural resources are fundamental to sustainable development. In this course we invite you to know the Standard and identify how to apply its requirements for development projects.
