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. This grant increase will enable the Bank Information Center to engage with partners in human rights organizations to promote the highest standards for safeguard policies that are currently under review at the World Bank.
