IFC Jordon project complaint

12 December 2000

On 30 November Friends of the Earth Middle East lodged a complaint on the International Finance Corporation (IFC)’s role in the Jordan Gateway Industrial Estate Project. Filed to the IFC‘s Compliance Advisor/Ombudsman’s Office, it accuses the IFC and the project sponsor of violating environmental assessment and public consultation procedures by refusing to consider alternative sites. Friends of the Earth argues that the Jordan River Valley, where the new industrial zone is to be placed, has significant heritage and environmental value.
