We seek to influence the global frameworks that determine development processes and public policies. Our goal is to ensure transparency, participation and human rights and the environment protection in decision-making at a local and international level. To this end, we monitor the actions of actors that mobilize resources for infrastructure and development, especially the IFIs (International Financial Institutions).
- Environmental, social and gender standards in financing for development
