Request for Input: UNDPís Draft Social and Environmental StandardsUNDP is pleased to invite comments on its draft Social and Environmental Standards (French and Spanish versions will be posted here) by 18 April 2014. The objectives of the standards are to: (i) strengthen the social and environmental outcomes of UNDPís programmes and projects; (ii) avoid adverse impacts to people and the environment; (iii) minimize, mitigate, and manage adverse impacts where avoidance is not possible; and (iv) strengthen capacities for managing social and environmental risks.
Inputs should help to ensure that the proposed standards respond to the needs of those UNDP aim to help; are relevant and practical within the context of UNDP works within; and are consistent with best practices.
Inputs will be taken into consideration in a revised version that will be presented to UNDPís senior management for endorsement. More information: http://bit.ly/1i1fqNg See All Upcoming Events
