Bank Risk Rating
Environmental and social categorization assessed by the development bank as a measure of the planned project’s environmental and social impacts. A higher risk rating may require more due diligence to limit or avoid harm to people and the environment. For example, "A" or "B" are risk categories where "A" represents the highest amount of risk. Results will include projects that specifically recorded a rating, all other projects are marked ‘U’ for "Undisclosed."

TRANSLATED VERSION OF THIS PSD:RUSSIAN Russian PROJECT DESCRIPTION Under the Tajikistan Solid Waste Framework the EBRD is considering financing priority capital investments for selected cities in Tajikistan. The framework consists of sub-projects aimed at improving the solid waste management services. TRANSITION IMPACT The transition impact potential of each sub-project under the framework is expected to arise from:(i) Consolidation of solid waste activities under one company (where applicable);(ii) Ownership transfer from the national authorities to municipal authorities in line with best practice (where applicable);(iii) The signing of a Public Service Contract between the company and the municipality with performance indicators;(iv) Tariff reform (i.e., adoption of cost recovery principle, tariff increases to operational cost recovery, etc.); and(v) Capacity building for the company (e.g., preparation of a Corporate Development Programme). THE CLIENT Solid waste management company in each participating city. EBRD FINANCE For each sub-project the EBRD will provide sovereign guaranteed loans to the solid waste companies. Total amount of the loans proposed under the framework: USD26 million PROJECT COST Up to USD 64.2 million including investment and technical cooperation grants. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT The Framework is not categorised under the 2008 E&S Policy; however, each sub-project will be categorised. The sub-projects are expected to bring substantial environmental, health and safety benefits to the subject cities and the surrounding communities through the rehabilitation of waste collection, transportation, and disposal services; increased operational efficiency, and environmental and hygiene standards. The ESDD for each sub-project will include at minimum an assessment of potential E&S impacts and benefits, and an E&S audit of the operations and facilities of each participating Municipality to help structure the PIPs. Corrective ESAPs and SEPs will be prepared for implementation during the projects, where necessary. Derogation from the ESP may need to be sought because the limited financial resources available are unlikely to be adequate for meeting the EU environmental requirements relating to recovery, recycling and re-use of waste and disposing of waste as the last resort. A separate PSD will be published for each sub-project under the Framework and will include a detailed E&S section upon completion of ESDD. TECHNICAL COOPERATION Each sub-project will have individually designed pre- and post-signing TCs; typically this will include: COMPANY CONTACT Operation Leader: Umed

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at
