Early disclosure

For projects with high environmental or social risk an Environmental and Social Strategy (ESS) is prepared early on during the project appraisal and prior to carrying out the environmental and social due diligence (ESDD). The ESS includes the initial E&S risk categorization and a brief description of potential Performance Standards applicable to the project. The ESS for this project is available below. Together with the ESS, IDB Invest also provides access to the client’s preliminary E&S documents that will be reviewed during the ESDD. The client E&S documents for this project can be found under the “CLIENT FILES” section below. Once the environmental and social due diligence is completed, an Environmental and Social Review Summary (ESRS) for the Project will be published on this page.
