CAO delivers on its mandate through three complementary functions:
CAO helps resolve issues raised about the E&S impacts of IFC/ MIGA projects through a neutral, collaborative, problem-solving approach and contributes to improved outcomes on the ground.
CAO carries out reviews of IFC/ MIGA compliance with E&S policies, assesses related harm, and recommends remedial actions to address noncompliance and harm where appropriate.
CAO provides advice to IFC/MIGA and their Boards with the purpose of improving IFC’s/MIGA’s systematic performance on E&S sustainability and reducing the risk of harm.
Using data, we gather and analyze big-picture insights from our cases to catalyze learning and help enhance development impact, particularly on environmental and social issues around the world.
