The review examined the extent to which social impacts associated with labor influx are identified and managed in project planning, development and implementation and made recommendations to improve any shortcomings as well as to share good practices identified.
The review was carried out in two phases. Phase 1 examined 20 Bank-financed projects in construction. During Phase 2, a review of a further 45 projects in the planning stages was carried out. The work featured a combination of desktop review and in-country visits to selected projects, featuring interviews of Bank, project and stakeholder representatives. A key focus was the extent to which gender-based violence and related issues were addressed.
