This Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) has been prepared in support of a project proposal entitled “Catalyzing Optimum Management of Natural Heritage for Sustainability of Ecosystem, Resources and Viability of Endangered Wildlife Species (CONSERVE)” (the project) by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry/Government of Indonesia to the Global Environment Facility (GEF). As this project is supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in its role as a GEF Implementing Agency, the project has been screened against the UNDP’s Social and Environmental Standards Procedure and deemed a High-Risk project. An ESMF has been prepared for the project at this stage, as the activities have not been fully specified in terms of specific locations and interventions, so cannot be fully assessed for all potential social and environmental risks and impacts.
