Addendum to ESMF For (CERC) Of The OECS Regional Health Project

This document is an Addendum to the Environmental and Social Framework (ESMF) for Component 4, the Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC), of the OECS Regional Health Project (P168539). The EMSF and this Addendum are intended to guide the environmental and social risk management activities of the emergency response component in response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic and form the CERC-ESMF which is part of the Operations Manual for the CERC action.

The project ESMF includes templates for relevant Environmental and Social Management Plans (ESMPs) which provide guidance for the construction and operation of healthcare facilities in general. For small civil works under CERC, the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) will prepare an ESMP describing the works/activities to be conducted and the associated mitigation measures to be used to avoid or reduce environmental and social risk. For projects or works with potential exposure to COVID-19, the ESMP will also include the additional safety measures in this Addendum, as provided in the following Annexes:

  • Screening Tool for E&S Risks
  • Infection Prevention Control Protocol (IPCP)
  • Health and Safety Guidelines for Retrofitting/Rehabilitation of Medical Facilities
  • ESHS Risks and Mitigation Measures for Small Civil Works at Health Care Facilities
  • Communication Guidance
