About EWS


The purpose of the Early Warning System (EWS) is to alert communities to projects funded by Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) that may affect their rights. Armed with information about the project and the standards that apply to them, communities can demand that the MDBs respect their rights. If the banks don’t, they can submit a complaint to its grievance mechanism or connect with organizations who can support their advocacy.
