In March, NGOs Gender Action and the Center for International Environmental Law published A step-by-step guide to holding IFIs accountable. The guide explains how and when to take a complaint to IFIs’ accountability mechanisms, discusses whether complaints are useful and how they are dealt with. In an analysis of the IFC’s April Handbook for Addressing Project Induced In-Migration, Gender Action found that “Gender concerns are almost entirely absent within the report.” A May Bank proposal for a paper on gender to feed into the environment strategy review looks like a belated add-on as the first phase of the consultation concludes.
