Forest Peoples’ Programme has produced three new briefings on World Bank policy reformulation processes (see previous Bretton Woods Updates). They cover the Indigenous Peoples’ Policy, Forest Policy, and general policy reformatting issues. The briefings state that “despite assurances from the Bank that its safeguard policies are not being diluted, NGOs are finding disturbing evidence of policy weakening”.
This briefing examines the trajectory of China's evolving leadership in international development finance, including the impact of it's massive increase in development finance for developing countries.
This briefing provides an overview of the immunity of international organisations in US law, looking at a lawsuit brought against the IFC regarding the Tata Mundra coal power plant in India.
