The Project portfolio will be consisting of emerging market FIs across globe and will include climate eligible transactions (20% of the portfolio on a best effort basis). The Project will use the Global Trade Liquidity Program (GTLP) platform, an innovative and well-received trade finance program launched by the IFC in 2009, through which IFC will play a countercyclical role during crisis, especially at times when other lending institutions or investors’ appetite may be subdued as negative economic impact is worsening due to multiple macroeconomic factors including COVID-19 related economic downturn, supply chain disruptions and surging inflation.

If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
