The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is a multilateral development bank that will focus on the development of infrastructure and interconnectivity in Asia. It will be based in Beijing and complement and cooperate with the existing multilateral development banks (MDBs).

The 57 countries that are the Prospective Founding Members of the AIIB are developing its core philosophy, principles, policies, value system and operating platform. The Bank's foundation is built on the lessons of experience of existing MDBs and the private sector, and it will put in place strong policies on governance, accountability, financial, procurement and environmental and social frameworks. In this context, the Multilateral Interim Secretariat for Establishing the AIIB (Secretariat) has developed a Draft Environmental and Social Framework…
