|Note: OP and BP 4.10 together replace OD 4.20, Indigenous Peoples, dated September 1991. These OP and BP apply to all investment projects for which a Project Concept Review takes place on or after July 1, 2005. Questions may be addressed to the Director, Social Development Department (SDV).|
(b) consultation approaches recognize existing Indigenous Peoples Organizations (IPOs), including councils of elders, headmen, and tribal leaders, and pay special attention to women, youth, and the elderly;
(c) the consultation process starts early, since decisionmaking among Indigenous Peoples may be an iterative process, and there is a need for adequate lead time to fully understand and incorporate concerns and recommendations of Indigenous Peoples into the project design; and
(d) a record of the consultation process is maintained as part of the project files.
(b) comments on the qualifications and experience of the social scientists who will carry out the SA.
(b) Resettlement Action Plan (RAP). If the borrower proposes the physical relocation of Indigenous Peoples, the TT ascertains specifically that (a) the borrower has explored alternative project designs to avoid physical relocation; and (b) the borrower has obtained broad support from the affected communities as part of the free, prior, and informed consultation process, and has documented it. The borrower also prepares a RAP in accordance with the requirements of OP 4.12, Involuntary Resettlement, and of OP 4.10, paragraph 20.
(c) Process Framework for Parks and Protected Areas. When the access of Indigenous Peoples to legally designated parks and protected areas is restricted, the borrower prepares a process framework with the free, prior, and informed consultation of the affected Indigenous Peoples’ communities, and in accordance with the provisions of OP 4.12, Involuntary Resettlement, and of OP 4.10, paragraphs 20 and 21.
(d) Indigenous Peoples Planning Framework (IPPF). For projects that involve the preparation and implementation of annual investment programs or multiple subprojects, the borrower prepares an IPPF in accordance with the requirements of Annex C of OP 4.10 and integrates it into the project design.
(e) Preparation of Program and Subproject IPPs. If the screening of an individual program or subproject identified in the IPPF indicates that Indigenous Peoples are present in, or have collective attachment to, the area of the program or subproject, the TT ensures that the borrower carries out an SA and prepares an IPP and other relevant instrument(s) in accordance with the requirements of OP 4.10. The borrower provides each relevant instrument to the Bank. The TTL forwards the instrument(s) to the Regional unit responsible for safeguards for review and clearance before the respective program or subproject is considered eligible for Bank financing. Where the Regional unit responsible for safeguards considers the IPPF as adequate for policy compliance, the TTL may agree with the borrower that the Bank’s prior review of IPPs or other instrument(s) for individual programs or subprojects will not be needed. However, the TT supervises the preparation of the SA (see paragraph 6 of this BP), and the formulation of any IPPs and other instrument(s) and their implementation by the borrower (see OP 4.10, paragraph 14 and footnote 15).
(b) the impact of the project, both positive and adverse, on the affected Indigenous Peoples;
(c) the achievement of the objectives of the relevant instrument(s), as relevant; and
(d) lessons for future operations involving Indigenous Peoples.
