Social Safeguards Basic & Advanced (Training Module)

This training module will introduce concepts in relation to environmental and social safeguards which will protect both the environment and the people from adverse effects of development projects, particularly from citywide infrastructure projects. Moreover, it will introduce the social safeguard planning, tools and practical guides in a broader perspective to create a foundation to localize and adopt social safeguard tools and mechanisms in the process of planning, designing and implementing citywide infrastructure projects.

Finally, this training module will be able to guide the participants to explore and understand in‐depth the roles, functions and tasks of safeguards in the operational practices. A practical work of identifying and analysing development induced social issues will be undertaken during the training through group work/exercise.
