EBRD Policies that IPAM reviews

IPAM has the ability to review the Bank's compliance with two EBRD governance policies: the Environmental and Social Policy and the Access to Information Policy.  These policies are available at the links below.



Annual Reports

IPAM produces a report every year summarising the activities it has undertaken during that period.  Each report describes how the Mechanism has cases; contributed to good international practice in the accountability sphere; and promoted awareness of its mandate through outreach, training and knowledge-sharing activities.  All annual reports are available below:

Previous editions of EBRD accountability policies

Earlier versions of the EBRD's accountability policy were used to review cases handled before July 2020.  These historic policies, no longer in effect, are available below for information.
