Inter-American Development Bank Excludes Civil Society from Annual Meeting

Today, Accountability Counsel and 36 other civil society organizations from across the Americas sent a letter to the Inter-American Development Bank demanding that it allow civil society participation in the Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors, which is taking place in Brazil at the end of the month.

The letter reminded the bank that these organizations have been active participants in establishing many important bank policies, including the policy that set up the bank’s accountability office.
