Independent complaints mechanism
The Mechanism ensures the right to be heard for Complainants who feel affected by an FMO-Financed Operation in order to enable resolution of disputes and assist FMO in drawing lessons learned for current and future operations. FMO strives to implement a robust and independent procedure and to communicate transparently about it to stakeholders.
The Mechanism is a joint initiative of DEG - Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft (DEG) and FMO. Since July 2018, the French Development Finance Institution Proparco has also joined the Mechanism.https://www.fmo.nl/independent-complaints-mechanism
