Amnesty International's Submission to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) Environmental and Social Framework Consultation (ESF), October 2015
Amnesty International lays out concerns with the current draft of the Environmental and Social Framework, in particular related to: a number of loopholes and disclaimers in the policies; confusing or contradictory language; together with some significant gaps in the draft that, if not addressed, are likely to undermine the overall strength of the document. The result of these weaknesses is that there is a significant risk that the AIIB may fund projects that are likely to result in negative human rights impacts.
