The activities will include the conduct of gap analyses, development of a toolkit, and organization of a community of practice and capacity building events for ES safeguards. The MCDF grant will also help facilitate the preparation of projects with high ES safeguards standards in both the sovereign and non-sovereign space for targeted clients.

Alignment with MCDF Core Values

The project will help improve institutional capacity of client countries and new partners in implementing IFI standards.
