    Public funds with limited responsibility: IFIs and human rights due diligence

    Public funds with limited responsibility: IFIs and human rights due diligence

    How do international financial institutions (IFIs) conduct due diligence on projects they finance? In this episode we will try to answer this question together with Xavier Sol - Director of Counter Balance, and Manana Kochladze - Chairwoman of Georgian NGO "Green Alternative" and Regional Coordinator for the Caucasus at CEE Bankwatch. In particular, we will look at the human rights role in IFIs' due diligence process and discuss the identification, monitoring, and assessment of projects' risks and impacts. We will look specifically at the European Investment Bank (EIB) - "the lending arm of the EU". On 1 February, the EIB will hold its annual seminar between civil society and the EIB’s Board of Directors, with a thematic discussion on “strengthening the EIB’s sustainability framework.”
