What are the reasons for having a Grievance Redress Mechanism (GRM) at different levels? How can they be established? What are the key elements to successfully operating them? Answers to these and many more questions were discussed at a three-day-workshop held by the IRM between 7 and 9 October in Songdo, South Korea.
In total 17 participants from GRMs of Direct Access Entities (DAEs) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), one member of the GCF’s Accreditation Panel, four colleagues from the GCF’s Environmental and Social Safeguards team and one from the Independent Evaluation Unit (IEU) attended this event. The workshop was held and organized by the IRM and facilitated by David Fairman, an external consultant from the Consensus Building Institute (CBI).
The IRM has created a short video about the workshop in October 2019. More information about the event can also be found in our blog post here.
