ESMF assesses environmental and social impacts related to the Project, and outlines an Environmental and Social Management and Monitoring Plan (ESMMP) as well as a Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) to address any adverse potential impacts as a result of this Project.The ESMF includes institutional arrangements required to implement environmental and social aspects and presents monitoring requirements for effective implementation of mitigation measures; describes training needs and specific reporting and documentation requirements; and proposes a third-party validation mechanism. The ESMF also assesses the Physical Cultural Resources (PCR) requirements and guides the preparation of PCR Management Plans, where required.
