About this grant

Infrastructure and energy projects constructed by development finance institutions like the World Bank and Asian Development Bank often come with environmental, social or governance risks. To address these risks, Accountability Counsel lawyers engage with development finance institutions’ accountability offices to advocate for people harmed by these institutions’ projects in infrastructure and energy. This grant increase is for general purposes, including plans to organize a convening of peer organizations working on the accountability of international financial institutions with the objective of developing an agenda for accountability advocacy over the next five years.
