Liability of the Expert
During a TIWB Programme, an Expert may encounter issues of professional liability (related to his/her professional activities) and/or workplace health and safety. Host Administrations, Experts, and Partner Administrations should ensure that potential liability issues are carefully considered and adequately addressed in advance of the TIWB Programme. Boundaries of protection for liability and workplace safety requirements are important to structure any TIWB Programme. In most cases, this is reflected in the Programme Terms of Reference through a clause that addresses the topics of liability and indemnity.
The UNDP's Social and Environmental Standards provide a framework for minimizing and mitigating risk (which can be built into the Programme Terms of Reference) and outline measures to address such problems.
