Safeguards Policies are indispensable instruments while attempting to intercept unmerited harm to the community and the surrounding environment throughout the development process. Safeguards Policies support the assessment of anticipated risks on the initial stage of project identification and designing. These instruments enable us to gauge the positive and negative impacts linked with any given development intervention. On the later stage of project implementation, safeguards ensure more effective management of risks and magnify constructive influence.

An increasing number of countries are ratifying the application of safeguards through a range of investment planning, policies and regulations targeting to attain more sustainable development. This extensive training program has been designed specifically to address the stated requirement and support its participants with the necessary skills and knowledge in order to meet with the social & environmental safeguards guidelines and principles across the world.
