Accountability Counsel conducts training for communities, their civil society partners, and lawyers seeking to assist communities challenging human rights and environmental abuses.
Trainings for a particular community typically cover a number of options that may be available to resolve a dispute and bring accountability. In our trainings we often partner with local lawyers or NGOs to discuss domestic legal or other strategies, while we provide in depth training on use of dispute-resolution mechanisms and compliance review procedures tied to international finance and development. The accountability mechanisms we specialize in are those of the World Bank Group, regional development banks, export credit agencies, and OECD National Contact Points.
We use our Accountability Resource Guide and individualized resource materials for our trainings in communities.
