What are the World Bank Safeguards?

 

Bank Information Center’s new informational video on the World Bank safeguards review. The video is intended to foster a general understanding of the review and its significance, and motivate people to send a note to their World Bank Executive Director asking for the strongest possible protections for the poor and the planet. Please help us circulate it widely. We hope it proves to be a useful tool for Phase 3 of the review.

There are two versions- English and Spanish, with subtitles available in either language. This link takes you to a BIC webpage with a template ED letter. When you select your country, a new e-mail box addressed to the ED who represents you is opened automatically.
