We require Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs) for all Category A projects and we ensure that these are made available to the public (in both English and the relevant local language) for a minimum of 60 days (120 days in the case of public sector projects) before Board review. Project sponsors are also required to make the ESIA publicly available for comment in at least one location near the project site.
Fifteen Category A projects requiring an ESIA were in an active disclosure period during 2013; of these 15 projects, 10 proceeded to Board review and approval during the year.
All Category A projects proceeding to the EBRD Board in 2013 met the Bank’s disclosure period requirements. The full ESIAs were available in local languages in all cases and all of the projects were disclosed electronically. Some of the projects were disclosed on our web site in addition to the client’s web site. The links were provided on each of the individual projects’ ESIA web pages.
