  The bolded Environmental category ‘A’ projects are important to monitor as category ‘A’ means that the project may have significant environmental impacts. They
require a full Environ mental Impact Assessment (EIA ). Category ‘B’ projects are expected to have limited environ mental impacts. Thus, an in itial environmental
examination (IEE) is required to determine whether or not significant environmental impacts warranting an EIA are likely. If an EIA is not needed, the IEE is regarded
as the final environmental assessment report. The category ‘C’ projects are unlikely to have adverse environmental impacts. No EIA or IEE is required, although
environmental imp lications are still reviewed. No environ mental analysis is required for F1 (financial intermediary), and U (structural adjustment) projects .
