Institutional Document | December 2021

This document provides a summary of the analytical study on Stakeholder Engagement, Grievance Redress, and Information Disclosure (SEID). 

This document summarizes an analysis comparing ADB’s current SPS policy provisions and procedures on Stakeholder Engagement, Information Disclosure and Grievance Redress Mechanism with those of other MFIs. The objective of the analytical study is to understand where there are similarities and differences, particularly comparing those with a stand-alone SEID policy standard, and benchmarking key themes where ADB is aligned with other multilateral financial institutions and where it needs to go further to meet the safeguard needs of evolving different financing modalities.
