A Look at Environmental and Social Risk Management in Projects Financed by the IDB

The Inter-American Development Bank promotes sustainable development for Latin America and the Caribbean. As a consequence, it provides orientations that contribute to appropriate management of environmental and social risks that can result from the implementation of projects in the region. In this course we will see why it is important to manage environmental and social risks in a timely manner in areas such as the environment, work and labor conditions, community health and safety, involuntary resettlement, indigenous peoples, and gender equality.
