According to the Bank’s website, the Urban Resilience Fund (TURF), a fund managed by Meridiam, will work with municipalities to identify, develop, and invest in essential infrastructure projects that respond to the critical needs of urban population growth in Africa and the Middle East. TURF will invest in projects in the transportation, energy transition, circular economy, resource management, and social infrastructure sectors ensuring the delivery of new and resilient urban infrastructure. TURF’s sidecar facility, the Urban Resilience Fund Catalytic Capital Fund (Technical Assistance Facility), supports the early-stage preparation and structuring of projects by funding feasibility studies and other assessments. The Technical Assistance Facility will support the development of potential DFC-eligible investments that will invest in much needed resilient infrastructure to help mitigate the negative impact of climate change and provide underserved communities with access to essential infrastructure such as water management systems, energy, and transportation.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
