According to the bank website, "The project is designed to carry out a market assessment to explore the business case for reaching the womens insurance market in developing countries. The assessment is also expected to highlight the potential development impact and commercial returns from womens greater participation in the insurance industry, both as members of the distribution channel and as consumers. The assessment will be carried out in collaboration with AXA, in 10 countries and up to 4 regions, in emerging markets that show high-growth potential for the insurance sector and opportunities in the womens market. The assessment results will be disseminated widely to the stakeholders, and the report will be available to the public."
This is a market assessment. Hence, no direct development impact is expected.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. 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/
