According to the Bank’s website, the project consists of a senior unsecured loan of up to EUR 100 million (or its USD equivalent) to DenizBank A.S. ("DenizBank") under Window 1 of the Turkiye-Disaster Response Framework ("DRF" or "Framework"), a framework for Turkish banks to support livelihoods, jobs and human capital in the South-Eastern provinces of Turkiye's affected by the February 6, 2023 earthquakes. The project will enable DenizBank to channel EBRD financing to support eligible private businesses and individuals directly impacted by the disaster, with an aim to address the most immediate funding needs of the local population in the affected cities, enabling borrowers to restructure existing loans as well as obtain additional financing as needed.
The Framework constitutes the first and immediate phase of EBRD's emergency crisis response to the devastating earthquakes in South-Eastern Turkiye. It will channel EBRD funding via the Bank's existing partner banks in Turkiye to provide relief, and support reconstruction efforts in the disaster provinces. As such, the Framework reflects the goals of the EBRD's Equality of Opportunity Strategy 2021-2025 ("EOS") which recognises that shocks and crises, including natural disaster, have the potential to entrench and exacerbate existing inequality of opportunity, therefore requiring the EBRD to mitigate the impacts of such events on livelihoods and human capital.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent.
You can contact the PCM at: email@example.com or you can submit a complaint online using an online form at: http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en
