Who we are
The European International Financial Institutions Network (EuroIFInet) is an informal but active network of European NGOs
who are committed to watching and holding to account the international financial institutions with regard to their role in
international development issues.
The network functions as a loose coalition of equal partners who recognise the added value of working together to drive
change and tackle issues which are beyond the scope of one organisation.
The network brings together information and analysis from a diverse group of development finance actors in Europe, allowing
for a pooling of knowledge, resources and ideas between groups who share similar objectives.
What we do
EuroIFInet provides a forum firstly for sharing information updates, secondly for facilitating engagement and strategising,
and thirdly for enabling the execution of joint actions. The network also identifies opportunities and priorities regarding
development finance issues relevant to the network such as governance of the IFIs, conditionality, safeguards, debt, tax,
trade, climate finance, and private-sector finance.
EuroIFInet also follows projects, especially infrastructure projects and the extractive industries, in light of reducing
harm from projects, ensuring respect for environmental and human rights criteria, and guaranteeing effective participation.
