Since 1992, BIC has worked with communities affected by projects funded by international finance institutions (IFIs) in Latin America. Our program partners with civil society organizations in the region to monitor and influence IFI projects and policies. We seek to ensure that IFI policy commitments, including on access to information, free prior and informed consent (FPIC), and protection of forests and biodiversity are upheld on the ground. We support local communities in connecting with IFI decision makers to voice their concerns and asserting their role in monitoring the environmental and social impacts of IFI investments.
