The objective is to reduce risk and damage from landslides through the implementation of mitigation measures and enhancement of policy and regulation associated with landslide management.
The project has three main components:
- Implementation of mitigation measures, including civil works and associated designs and construction
- Enhancement of policy, standards and institutional capacity;
- Provision of essential facilities and laboratory equipment.

AIIB’s Environmental and Social Policy (ESP), including the Environment and Social Standards (ESSs), applies to the proposed project. In accordance with the ESP, the project has been classified as Category B, considering that: (i) the general environmental and social impacts of the landslide mitigation works are localized, and the impacts are not irreversible; (ii) there are mature engineering technologies for mitigation and protection; (iii) there is solid in-house expertise and management capacity for environmental and social issues in the National Building Research Organization (NBRO); and (iv) NBRO has experience working on similar projects funded by the national government and other MDBs.
