In Latin America and other regions, many large-scale development projects, such as infrastructure or extractive industries initiatives, are financed by international financial institutions (IFIs) and have the potential for diverse social and environmental impacts. A long time in the making, most IFIs now have transparency and accountability mechanisms that allow citizens to actively participate in the IFI-funded projects that directly impact their lives. This spotlight presents a selection of publications that provide insights, cases, lessons learned and guidelines to help development practitioners, communities and civil society organisations (CSOs), among other stakeholders, access tools to activate IFIs accountability mechanisms and to actively participate in decision making about large-scale development projects in their communities.
