According to IFC website, the Project aims at building the capacity of Asociacion Hondurena de Instituciones Bancarias (AHIBA) member banks with a view to increasing their ESG knowledge and introducing best practices to the Honduran banking market. The Project will consist of the delivery of a series of workshops and training delivered to AHIBA and local banks in order to build ESG capacity and facilitate better understanding, awareness and implementation of best ESG practices. The Project also includes the development of guidance materials in E&S matters to support these workshops, as well as the development of a report on CG in FIs in Honduras based on a survey to be developed by the Project and administered by AHIBA.
As a result of this Project, participating financial institutions (FIs) and/or related entities in Honduras will be expected to (i) improve or develop capacity and processes for ESG risk management and/or (ii) disseminate and promote sound ESG standards in the Honduran market.

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/
