    Goals / remit

CEE Bankwatch Network is an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) with member organisations currently from 12 countries across the central and eastern European region.

We monitor the activities of the international financial institutions (IFIs) which operate in the region and the spending of European Regional Development and Cohesion Funds in CEE, and propose constructive alternatives to IFI and EU policies and projects in the region.

Bankwatch is working to prevent negative environmental and social impacts of IFI or EU financed projects, and promotes public participation and access to information about IFI activities and European cohesion policy across our region.

Our goals:
· To create public awareness about the activities of international financial institutions (IFIs) and EU regional development policies in central and eastern European countries and its social and environmental impacts.

· To promote public participation in the decision making process about the policies and projects of the IFIs and EU funds, at the local, national and regional levels.

· To help non-governmental environmental organisations and citizen groups to monitor what the IFIs are doing in central and eastern Europe and how investments fostered by EU development funds are planned and executed.

· To change - or stop - the environmentally and socially destructive policies and projects of IFIs or EU funds in central and eastern Europe, and to promote alternatives.

· To cooperate with environmental citizen organisations in order to stop the destructive activities of transnational corporations, and to limit their overall impacts on the environment in central and eastern Europe.
