The aim of this guide is to assist Civil Society Organization (CSOs) activists in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the Caucasus and Central Asia (ECA) region to readily identify investment projects and programmes carried out by the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) that are likely to have detrimental gender impacts and influence them, through advocacy work during the project preparation, as well as through compliance mechanisms. The Guide addresses several of the IFIs active in the region, including the World Bank Group, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, European Investment Bank and Asian Development Bank, as well as the European Union financial instruments – the European Neighborhood and Partnership Instrument and the Development Cooperation Instrument.
