Comments on AIIB’s Environmental and Social Framework
Civil society organizations from Denmark, France, Germany, Georgia, Central Asia, the US, Indonesia and Romania have submitted their joint inputs on the implementation of AIIB’s Environmental and Social Framework for phase one of the ESF review.
The joint submission highlights concerns for how the ESF has been poorly applied to the screening and implementation of projects against the backdrop of weakened transparency and accountability since the ESF became operational in 2017. Civil societies in these countries therefore call on the AIIB to assess the implementation of ESF during the review period, and make these assessments public for a meaningful review.
