UN-Habitat has prepared an Environmental and Social Commitment Plan (ESCP) which sets out material measures and actions, specific documents or plans, as well as the timing for each of these. Based on the World Bank's ESSs that apply, UN-Habitat has prepared the following instruments together with the Environmental and Social Commitment Plan:

Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP)

This Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) includes mitigation, monitoring, documentation and reporting, and institutional setup and capacity building plans primarily aiming at meeting the World Bank’s Environmental and Social Framework (ESF) requirements and relevant national regulations. The ESMP is also in line with the Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF), the Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP), and the Environmental and Social Commitment Plan (ESCP) developed at the onset of the project.
