Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS)



The purpose of the ESMS is to ensure that the grants and projects approved and financed by the CBF (CBF Activities) bring about environmental and social benefits and avoid, minimize, and mitigate environmental and social risks and negative impacts. The ESMS is intended to be used by the staff of the CBF Secretariat who will be implementing the ESMS. It is also intended to be used by National Conservation Trust Funds (the NCTFs) that sub-grant CBF funds through their Partnership Agreements and other CBF grantees that execute CBF Activities through CBF Programs such as the Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and Advancing Circular Economy (ACE) Facilities.
