The proposed projects of the first and second tranches and the projects of subsequent tranches of the SUDIP follow adequate environmental assessment processes. The Environmental Assessment and Review Frameworks (EARF) were prepared to provide guidance on safeguard screening, assessment, institutional arrangements, and processes to be followed for projects.
