Conference for Grievance Redress
and Accountability Mechanisms

Due to the global outbreak of the coronavirus, the organizers of the GRAM Conference have taken a decision to postpone the event until the risk has subsided. 

On this page, we will update you as soon as we have further information about the new dates of the conference.

The IRM plans to host a conference for Grievance Redress and Accountability Mechanisms (GRAM).  

The conference will bring together Grievance Redress and Accountability Mechanisms (GRAMs) of different institutions, established Independent Accountability Mechanisms (IAMs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), academics and other grievance redress and accountability practitioners to share experiences and knowledge, to learn from each other and to create a platform for all relevant stakeholders.

The focus of the conference is to provide a training opportunity for GRAMs, in particular of GCF’s Direct Access Entities, and to build a community of practice to facilitate a knowledge share between more established accountability mechanisms and new participants in this field of practice. The ultimate goal in building this community of practice is to offer training opportunities, foster accountability, to learn from each other’s experiences, and to create an ongoing space for support between accountability practitioners.

The conference is organized by the IRM in collaboration with the GRAM partnership, a loose association formed to provide leadership to the growing number of second-generation grievance redress and accountability mechanisms. The partnership was formed in 2019 by the IRM, together with the Internal Audit office of the Black Sea Trade & Development Bank, the Social and Environmental Compliance Unit (SECU) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and Accountability Counsel.
