About this grant

Multilateral development banks, and particularly the World Bank, play a central role in formulating development policy and are the dominant environmental and social standard setters in international finance and investment. The Bank Information Center supports developing country organizations in their efforts to influence the social and environmental impacts of multilateral development bank-financed projects and policies, with a particular focus on accountability and transparency at the World Bank Group. During the next two years, the grantee will provide information dissemination and capacity-building services, networking and coalition-building expertise, and advocacy support to partners around the world. This grant provides continued general purpose support to the Bank Information Center.
