WORKS WITH BOTH ENDS ON
ILSA and Both ENDS work together on influencing the Safeguards of the World Bank, with the purpose of achieving a high level of social and environmental protection. The Safeguards are being revised with a prolonged process of consultations.
ADDED VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP
ILSA is a professional organization with human rights as it's base. ILSA is active in processes of policy development in Colombia, among others, on the field of agriculture and forests policy. The knowledge of the local consequences of, for example, the World Bank en the translation of policy proposals, contributes to the work of Both ENDS on influencing policy of the World Bank.
ILSA cooperated with Both ENDS by researching the origin of coals that are used by Dutch energy companies and it's environmental impact. Thanks to this cooperation the Dutch coal dialogue between civil society organisations, trade unions and energy companies came off the ground.
