INDES Programs are a set of online courses thematically interrelated and frequently interdependent, offered as a cohesive, more comprehensive, and lengthier learning opportunity. Some of our programs are directed at a diverse audience from organizations that work on a same institutional context such as Subnational Governments or public and private entities and agencies linked to regional integration. In most cases, courses that are part of a program might be taken individually, without any commitment to completing the full program.
The Environmental and Social Safeguards Unit (ESG) of the IDB identifies and manages environmental and social impacts and risks in Bank operations in order to achieve long-term environmental and social viability and foster sustainable development in the region.
Safeguard policies improve lives by increasing the sustainability of projects and reducing negative impacts to people and the natural resources they depend on.
The ESG training program has the objective of improving capacity on local counterparts to guarantee optimal management of the environmental and social risk on IADB financed projects.
