About Us

Accountability Counsel defends the environmental and human rights of communities around the world who are harmed by internationally financed development projects. We specialize in non-judicial accountability mechanisms established to receive community complaints.

We accomplish our mission through: (1) assisting communities to use these mechanisms effectively and; (2) policy advocacy, ensuring that these complaint offices are accessible, transparent, and fair tools for justice.

Our approach includes working closely with community members to help voice their complaints. Our work pays particular attention to women, girls and other marginalized groups, who are often the most deeply harmed by abuses.
