Environmental and Social Performance Standard 5 on Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement
The environmental and social context of the Latin American and Caribbean region has evolved since the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) safeguard policies were developed more than 15 years ago. The Environmental and Social Policy Framework modernizes many of the requirements of those safeguards policies into a comprehensive and consolidated framework that responds better to the environmental and social challenges facing our countries: social inequality, climate change, and the depletion of natural capital. In turn, the new Framework emerges as an opportunity to improve, update, and harmonize environmental and social standards within the IDB group and with other multilateral organizations, so that the borrower must always abide by similar requirements.

The IDB's Environmental and Social Performance Standard 9 recognizes that gender equality has intrinsic value. Gender equality is not only an issue of justice and human rights but also a driver of sustainable development.
