Safeguards Accountability and Grievance Mechanism

WWF’s Policy on Accountability and Grievance Mechanism has established a grievance mechanism to allow for the expression of and response to complaints related to the implementation of its projects. This mechanism is designed to allow project-affected people to ask critical questions about WWF projects.

The purpose of the WWF-US Safeguards Resource Page is to provide information on WWF-US Safeguards Integrated Policies and Procedures (SIPP) which includes Policy on Environment and Social Assessment; Policy on Protection of Natural Habitats; Policy on Involuntary Resettlement Policy on Indigenous People; Standard on Pest Management; Policy on Accountability and Grievance Systems; Standard on Physical Cultural Resources; and Guidance Note on Dams and Dam Safety. The SIPP is mandatory to all Green Climate Fund and Global Environment Facility financed projects. Although it’s not mandatory, the SIPP serves as standards for all WWF-US’s projects and is already being applied to projects outside the GCF and GEF portfolios.
