Environment Management Framework

All AIF resource users will be required to follow an environmental management framework (EMF). The major objectives of the EMF are to ensure protection of physical and social environment, compliance with the legal requirements and addressing these issues efficiently and appropriately during all stages of sub-project implementation.

The sub-project proposal generating institutions will be required to submit a checklist to identify environmental issues in the infrastructure renovation/refurbishing/ extension works. If there is any environmental issue identified, the sub-project submitting entity/the author will have to submit the mitigation measures for those activities.

Sub-project preliminary proposals will be reviewed on environmental ground at both the institutional level and at UGC level by environmental experts.
