The project will have a positive impact on the environment by reducing the need for fossil fuels for heating and cooling, and thus indirectly reducing pollution (mainly airborne pollution) in urban environments and greenhouse gas emissions. Environmental impact assessments (EIAs) have been performed for the two sub-projects. The Bank will review the EIA process and documentation during appraisal and ensure adherence to its environmental and social standards.
The Bank will require that the implementation of the project is done in compliance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement. The Bank will monitor the procurement process to ensure compliance with our Guide.
