IDB releases draft of new Access to Information Policy

The Inter-American Development Bank management today submitted a draft Access to Information Policy to its Board of Executive Directors.  The document and an accompanying Background Paper are simultaneously being made available to the public, after incorporating suggestions from a public consultation that concluded April 18.

The new proposal aims to vastly expand the information available to the public on project documents and Board proceedings and establish a new system for classifying and declassifying documents, among other reforms.

The review of the policy began in December. Approval of a new policy is expected before the signing of a $70 billion capital increase agreement.
