The aim of this third project with GBA is to support two critical areas necessary to grow the Alliance and integrate more women into the economy. Firstly, peer learning activities and secondly, building gender data capacity for GBA and its members and select stakeholders.
The Global Banking Alliance for Women (GBA) is a global consortium of financial institutions dedicated to supporting banks by capturing the opportunity of the Women’s Market. GBA members work in more than 135 countries to build innovative, comprehensive programs that deliver women the tools that they need to succeed, including access to capital, information, education and markets. Indirectly, this project will benefit FMO’s client banks, primarily in Africa and Asia, but also other regions.
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/
