The NGO Forum on the Asian Development Bank has been advocating for sustainable development policies that are beneficial to local communities and the environment in the Asian region for two decades. It works to improve public participation, access to information, and good governance at the Asian Development Bank and the new Chinese development finance institutions. Over the next two years, the grantee will continue to participate in the review of the Asian Development Bank’s environmental and social safeguard policies. The grantee also will monitor the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank’s project lending to better understand how well it complies with its stated policies. In addition, the grantee will expand its work to build the capacity of Asian civil society to engage more fully in national energy planning processes.
