UNDP's Social and Environmental Screening Procedure (SESP)

Effective from 01 Jan 2015

UNDP’s project-level Social and Environmental Procedure was launched in 2012 as part of a phased roll-out process.The procedure was subsequently revised to align with the Social and Environmental Standards and respond to lessons learned from implementation.


The objectives of the SESP are to: (a) Integrate the SES Overarching Principles (human rights, gender equality and environmental sustainability); (b) Identify potential social and environmental risks and their significance; (c) Determine the Project's risk category (Low, Moderate, High); and (d) Determine the level of social and environmental assessment and management required to address potential risks and impacts.
