BHRC Submits Proposals to World Bank

March 30, 2015-  The Bank on Human Rights Coalition issued the following submission to the staff and Directors of the World Bank as part of the Bank’s ongoing safeguards review:

Key Human Rights Concerns and Recommendations regarding the World Bank’s Proposed Social and Environmental Safeguards Framework

The submission lays out critical gaps in the proposed safeguards draft, and proposes text to address these gaps and to ensure that Bank-financed activities serve the development needs and priorities of local communities and do not cause, contribute to or exacerbate human rights violations.
