ESF Guidance Notes LiveChat TODAY: Nov. 28, from 10 to 11:30 AM ETs

In August 2016, the World Bank's Board of Executive Directors approved the Environmental and Social Framework (ESF), which will go into effect in the Fall of 2018. The World Bank is preparing Guidance Notes for Borrowers as a resource to help explain requirements contained in the Standards and provide helpful examples. The draft Guidance Notes are open for public comment until December 15, 2017. Comments can be sent to

A LiveChat today, November 28, from 10 to 11:30 AM ET will focus on answering questions pertaining to the process of the comment period as well as the substance of the notes.

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Where can I get some?

Getting to Work: Unlocking Women’s Potential in Sri Lanka’s Labor Force seeks to understand why Sri Lankan women’s rates of labor force participation continue to decline despite steady economic growth. In November, the World Bank participated in a series of panel discussions with the Government, the private sector and civil society, to unpack the findings of the new report.

Of particular interest were practical actions that had been taken on the ground, and policy reforms that could support women by boosting skills, resolving issues around safety and childcare, and creating a working environment free of discrimination and sexual harassment.

Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
