The new EIB e-learning course dedicated to its EU based 10 environmental and social standards.

Specifically, this course allows participants to better understand:

  • how environmental and social risk management is relevant to their institution (equity fund, local bank, microfinance institution) and their clients;
  • how to apply the EIB’s 10 E&S standards for investments outside the EU;
  • how to implement an environmental and social management plan to guide their investment decisions.

Provision of training with local universities and other specialised training providers

In order to make the training component sustainable and allow for the possibility to offer training locally for bank personnel, the programme has established a partnership with Universidade Politécnica, Maputo, to support both the financial institutions as well as current and potential loan beneficiaries. The knowledge generated in this programme shall be utilized to develop training curricula and be transferred to banking and business students within the local population, potentially benefiting other stakeholders (e.g., government and service providers).

The curricula and training courses are strategically designed and selected to enhance the capacities of participants and partner institutions. This access to quality training could potentially be extended beyond the duration of the EIB’s programme.

The following courses took place:
