About the Event:
International financial institutions including the World Bank and major regional development banks and other financial institutions such as the International Finance Corporation have set up accountability mechanisms to address projects assisted by these institutions when these projects adversely impact on peoples. The first accountability mechanism was set up in 1993 and experience has been gained over the past 2 decades in handling problem projects through investigation, problem-solving and other modes. This seminar focuses on the growth of these accountability mechanisms, addresses governance aspects, and focuses on case studies of two projects where claimed have been filed with various international financial institutions including the World Bank, African Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, International Finance Corporation, and European Investment Bank. The seminar addresses how problem projects can be handled more effectively and examines how improvements can be made to address these problem projects. This event is being held in collaboration with The World Trade Organisation Scholars' Forum
