This guide is written for communities who face negative impacts from IFC-supported projects. It explains what the IFC is and how it provides financial and other support to businesses, including intermediary banks and funds. The guide explains what the IFC Environmental and Social Performance Standards are and who is responsible for implementing them and making sure they are respected on the ground. It also covers two of the Performance Standards (Involuntary Resettlement and Indigenous Peoples) in details, and explains what affected communities can do if an IFC-supported project does not comply with the Performance Standards and causes harm. Finally, it discusses company complaint mechanisms, raising the issues directly with the IFC, and using the IFC’s independent complaint mechanism, called the Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO).

Every year millions of people are displaced from their homes, lands and livelihoods in the name of development.

Disenfranchised from decision-making, poor and marginalized communities are forced to shoulder the costs of development and are thrust into deeper poverty.  This crisis is fueled by unaccountable political and economic institutions that promote harmful investment, trade and development projects that fail to safeguard people’s rights, preserve common resources and distribute benefits equitably.
