This project creates a partnership between the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) and FMO to support FMO's financial intermediary clients, the FMO Gender Working Group and FMO’s Women’s Market and Women-Owned SME approach. KIT will support FMO build a better gender lens in its financing strategy and approach.
The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) was set up in 1910 as a ‘Colonial Institute’ for the study of the Tropics and the promotion of trade and industry in the former colonies; it is now a foundation / society that works as an advisory and research firm to enhance the positive impact of agencies, governments and corporations on sustainable development in low- and medium income countries. They achieve this by generating evidence and applied knowledge for the practical implementation of socio-economic change, working in partnerships.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF FMO
Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW) . A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at: https://www.fmo.nl/
