A study

October 26, 2021

Just Finance International and the Heinrich Boell Foundation’s report The Beijing-led Asian infrastructure Investment Bank: Global Leader in Infrastructure, at What Cost? by Dr. Korinna Horta and Wawa Wang exposes how the Beijing-led AIIB in the review of its most important safeguard policy fails to improve accountability and transparency measures, despite earlier promises for higher environmental and social standards. 

The report illustrates the ways in which loopholes exist for the Bank’s highest decision-makers and clients, thus hindering the public and affected communities’ access to critical environmental and social information early on in the decision making of risky large scale infrastructure projects.
