IDBG Framework for Planning, Preparing, and Financing Sustainable Infrastructure Projects
11. May 2018
This paper introduces a framework of sustainability criteria that covers an integrated spectrum of economic, financial, environmental, social, and institutional dimensions for infrastructure projects. The framework addresses three key stages of infrastructure delivery: policy and planning (or upstream level), project preparation and design, and financing. The framework was developed by reviewing and building upon existing sustainability rating systems, tools, and multilateral development bank frameworks, safeguards, and policies.
