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 analyses the role of the Bank and Fund in the UN Financing for Development negotiations.
