The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is continuing the consultation process on its safeguard policies, seeking valuable feedback from stakeholder groups from across Asia and the Pacific as it updates its environment, involuntary resettlement and indigenous peoples safeguard policies.

The consultative process gives stakeholders a chance to review and comment upon the key features of the safeguard policy update, including efforts to harmonize ADB's safeguard requirements with other multilateral financial institutions.

"We have a consultation process that's on track," said Nessim J. Ahmad, Director, ADB Environment and Social Safeguards Division. "The safeguard policy update is about improving our policies and focusing our efforts on more effective implementation of our projects in ways that better serve and protect the people and environment affected by development."

Mr. Ahmad said the intent is to "bring safeguard policies into one consolidated policy statement. The update process will help us develop a clear and shared understanding within the bank and among our stakeholders of our basic safeguard principles."

The next meetings, 30-31 January, will be in Sydney and include representatives from government, non-government organizations, academia, and the private sector in Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Federated States of Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Multilateral financial institutions and other development agencies are also expected to join.
