Joint NGO technical briefing on the World Bank Safeguard Review sent to the UK Executive Director

Following the closure of Phase 1 of the World Bank's safeguards review consultations, various international NGOs, including FPP, have written to Gwen Hines (UK World Bank Executive Director) to urge her to engage with the safeguards review team ahead of their presentation to the World Bank Board on 23 July, on issues of critical importance. These issues include the scope and process of the review, the architecture for the new system of safeguard application, implementation concerns, recommendations on  ‘Emerging Issues’ identified in the October 2012 approach paper, and consultation concerns. More details of these issues are included with the letter in a technical briefing.
