AbstractThe purpose of this technical note is to identify key environment and safeguard-related risks and opportunities that should be taken into account in the new Country Strategy for the Dominican Republic (DR) as required by the IDB's Environment and Safeguard Policy approved in January 2006. Section A.6 of this document affirms that "the Bank will seek to identify early on potentially highly sensitive programs / projects considered for possible Bank financing in its operational programming documents, including Country Strategies, in order to plan for possible courses of action to manage risks." It goes on to state that "the Bank will take into account the country environmental analysis or other assessments from environmental due diligence processes at the stage of project / program identification, to assess early on potentially significant environmental risks and opportunities."
