IDB Invest reaffirms its commitment to transparency with its new Access to Information Policy
The Board of Executive Directors of IDB Invest has approved its new Access to Information Policy.
With this new Policy, IDB Invest reaffirms its commitment to transparency in the exercise of its activities and strengthens its governance and responsibility, while reflecting the new Access to Information standards adopted by international financial Institutions with emphasis on private sector issues.
As part of the Policy preparation process, IDB Invest opened the draft policy for Public Consultation and established a transparent dialogue that allowed for the suggestions of interested parties to be heard, giving everyone the opportunity to contribute to improving the effectiveness of the Policy.
During the Consultation, face-to-face meetings were held in Washington, D.C. and in various countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition, a virtual consultation was carried out through http://consultation.idbinvest.org/.
After the approval by the Board of Executive Directors of IDB Invest, the new Access to Information Policy has been made available to the public.
The new Policy will replace the current Disclosure of Information Policy. A report of the public consultation has been published, which includes the comments received during the consultation, as well as the responses to said comments. Both documents are available on this page.
In the near future, IDB Invest will make available to the public the draft of the Implementation Guidelines of the new Access to Information Policy for virtual Public Consultation during a period of 30 days.
