This Good Practice Note (GPN) provides guidance on using a risk management approach to the application of the dam safety requirements. The GPN pertains to:

  1. the construction of new dams or dams under construction (DUC) under investment project financing (IPF);
  2. the rehabilitation of existing dams under IPF; and
  3. existing dams or DUC that are not financed under IPF, on which the project relies or may rely.

The guidance contained in this note is designed to enhance the quality of practice without creating new requirements for the application of the envrionmental and social framework (ESF). The GPN provides guidance on compliance requirements, a risk management approach to dam safety, risk analysis tools, quality of information and capacity, application to World Bank operations, and procedural aspects.
