Tools for Redressing Human Rights & Environmental Abuses in International Finance and Development

The Accountability Resource Guide addresses tools for redressing human rights and environmental violations by international financial institutions, export promotion agencies and private corporate actors. The Guide is designed to be used in conjunction with Accountability Counsel trainings.

The purpose of the Guide is to provide information for people who are, or who may be, harmed by projects sponsored by:

  • international financial institutions (such as the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, and regional development banks);
  • export credit, national development banks and governmental agencies (such as the U.S. Government’s agency, OPIC, and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation); and
  • multinational corporations.

The Guide is intended to assist community leaders, lawyers, NGOs and individuals in determining what rights they have and how to file a complaint when those rights have been or may be violated. The Guide also discusses information disclosure rules at the international financial institutions.
