Social safeguards plan as well as good safeguards practices should be well-established in the process of project preparation and implementation. Government of Nepal (GoN) is committed to address safeguard requirements while designing and implementing any development projects that could have adverse impacts, however, safeguard provisions are scattered in a number of GoN acts, rules, and guidelines.
In Nepal, safeguards performance of development programs and projects seems very poor. That is why, ADB’s Nepal Country Partnership Strategy has emphasized the need for improvement in such performance of projects funded by it. There is an urgent need of developing capacity in key agencies and to meet an immediate requirement for better environmental and social safeguards policy provisions. Training needs assessments conducted by Capacity Development Resource Center in 2017 and 2021 have indicated gaps in safeguards related knowledge and skills of officials working in the ADB assisted projects. In this regard, the training program on professional social safeguards has been designed to impart safeguards knowledge and skills to the participants.
The aim of this course is to enhance social safeguards related knowledge and skills of the participants working in different ADB assisted projects.
Objectives of the Course
At the end of this training program, the participants are expected to be able to:
• analyze the legal procedures, principles and provisions of social safeguard; and
• implement safeguards policy principles in development projects.
