Background / General description:

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, is a leader in sustainable investment in emerging markets. IFC is increasingly investing in projects with environmental and social risk issues related to the Amazon region in Brazil. These projects pose challenges to IFC because they often require the development of innovative and untested solutions to the challenges of sustainability involving a wide range of stakeholders, from community residents and small farmers and local NGOS, CEOs/CFOs of client and non-client companies, to international NGO and World Bank staff.  The IFC has developed an Amazon Initiative Framework, an integrated World Bank Group approach to support the sustainable development of the Amazon. Such Initiative contemplates a combination of IFC financing and technical assistance to create incentives and new business models for private sector investments in the region. IFC s main objectives are to improve the conditions for sustainable business models, to develop sustainable value chain with suppliers and local communities, while protecting the environment, and to disseminate good practices in each industry sector.
