2.5 International bank for reconstruction and development (IBRD)

Here, too, there are no direct guidelines for the handling of Asbestos. However, organizational structures exist, which consider the environmental risk estimation, comparable to that described above for EBRD.

The IBRD expects the project applicant to perform the necessary environmental studies. In special cases, financial and technical support is provided for the performance of these studies. Based on the check list of the IBRD, a detailed account of the environmental situation is performed. Asbestos is not explicitly listed in this check list, however.
