Environmental and Social Assessment Procedures for AfDB Public Sector Operations - June 2001
Since the adoption of the Bank’s Environmental Policy and Environmental Assessment Guidelines in 1990 and 1992 respectively, many changes have occurred in the Bank’ structure and operations. Some major changes included the creation of the Environmental and Sustainable Development Unit (OESU) in 1996, adoption or review of several policies and new focus on mainstreaming crosscutting issues into Bank’s operations. As a result work was undertaken to review and update the current environmental assessment procedural guidelines and harmonize them with policies and practices in other multilateral development banks.
