BIC's Stakeholder Engagement Campaign pushes for increased and more meaningful opportunities for civil society and communities to have a voice in the development process. We advocate for greater transparency and public access to information about development projects financed by International Financial Institutions (IFIs), involvement of those who will be directly impacted by development projects in their design and implementation, upstream opportunities for civil society to feed into development planning processes and institutional policies, and opportunities for redress and accountability when people or the environment are harmed in the development process.
