Webinar series: Mini-grids: How to comply with IFC Environmental and Social Performance Standards

REPP and AMDA would like to invite you to attend our upcoming webinar series from 13:00-14:30 GMT on Monday, 3 December and Wednesday, 5 December.

Most mini-grid developers are required to guarantee the environmental and social integrity of their projects by complying with IFC Performance Standards or similar measures – but this can often be an onerous and complicated process.

The aim of this two-part webinar series is to guide mini-grid developers through the IFC’s standards and assist them in establishing Environmental and Social Management Systems (ESMS) suitable to their needs.

Participants can expect to:

  • Acquire a detailed understanding of the IFC’s requirements;
  • Understand the environmental and social impacts of solar mini-grids; and
  • Receive and understand tools to establish an ESMS for solar mini-grids.

This webinar series is primarily aimed at project developers, but will be of interest to relevant government institutions and environmental and social consultants.
