The Bretton Woods Project was established in 1995 by the Development and Environment Group (DEG), a network of UK-based NGOs, to facilitate monitoring of the social and environmental impacts of World Bank and IMF policies and projects. The Project coordinates and consults with the UK BWI network, over 50 organisations working in development, environment and human rights. The Bretton Woods Project Steering Group, meets on a regular basis to advise and review Project activities. The Project is funded by the NGOs in the UK BWI network, the CS Mott Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Polden Puckham Charitable Foundation. Publication of the Bretton Woods Update is supported by Oxfam-Novib and The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. Support is received from the European Commission to support UK work in the Counterbalance coalition which monitors the European Investment Bank. At present, ActionAid is kindly hosting the Bretton Woods Project.
