Information disclosure and public participation in decision-making: necessary changes for EBRD policies
Briefing | 10 May 2013
EBRD policy must take a stance: will it limit the ways in which stakeholders interact with each other and with the environment by adopting technical and procedural solutions? Or will it aim to promote shifts in social relations, in line with its mandate to promote sustainability and democratisation in its countries of operation? In this briefing, Bankwatch recommends a number of improvements in the EBRD’s Environmental and Social Policy and its Public Information Policy to better reflect the needs of the public.
