Good Practice Note: Addressing the Social Dimensions of Private Sector Projects

Descripción del documento: 
IFC views social assessment as an important tool for evaluating the social aspects of IFC-financed projects as well as an integral part of IFC's environmental assessment process. This Good Practice Note provides guidance on how to identify and assess project-related social issues. It also provides guidance on options for social ”value added” and sustainable development opportunities that may arise in project development. While the identification and assessment of impacts of IFC financed projects are mandatory, the approach outlined in this document serves as good practice guidance.
