ӯƱ's Accountability Mechanism

ӯƱ's Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ӯƱ-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance with ӯƱ's operational policies and procedures. It consists of two separate but complementary functions: problem-solving function and compliance review function.

The objective of the Accountability Mechanism Policy 2012 is to be accountable to people for ӯƱ-assisted projects as a last resort mechanism. Our policy and information are available in several local languages for easier access by project-affected people. We would appreciate the NGO/CSO community's carrying forward the message of ӯƱ's Accountability Mechanism as widely as possible to people in developing countries.

Problem-solving Function

The problem-solving function aims to actively respond to the concerns of people affected by ӯƱ-assisted projects through fair, transparent, and consensus-based problem-solving.

Compliance Review Function

The compliance review focuses on the direct and material harm alleged by project-affected people, and whether this is caused by ӯƱs violations of its operational policies and procedures in formulating, processing, or implementing the project.
