Assignment Title: 1274207 – Region of Beni-Mellal Khenifra (RBMK) Water Environmental And Social Management Framework (ESMF)
IFC and RBMK intend to explore potential water projects that could be considered for financing. Projects financed by IFC would be required to comply with IFC Performance Standards for E&S Sustainability.
The objective of this assignment is to develop an E&S Management Framework, which sets out the principles, rules, guidelines and procedures for screening, assessing, and managing the potential social and environmental impacts of forthcoming but as yet undefined water subprojects. It contains measures and plans to avoid, and where avoidance is not possible, to reduce, mitigate and/or offset adverse risks and impacts. The ESMF specifies the most likely applicable social and environmental policies and requirements and how those requirements will be met through procedures for the screening, assessment, approval, mitigation, monitoring and reporting of social and environmental risks and impacts associated with the activities to be financed by IFC.
EoI should have a strict limit of 25 pages.
