  • Founded2007


Since 2007 the CommDev website has served as a curated repository for information on community and sustainability issues related to extractive industries, agribusiness, forestry and infrastructure sectors (such as hydropower). Hosted by IFC’s Infrastructure & Natural Resources (INR) Advisory team, it draws from the diverse experience of IFC clients, on-the-ground practitioners, partner institutions and industry alliances to present a select set of knowledge and tools exemplifying best practices and offering guidelines for private, public and civil society actors. Their goal is to raise the bar on how business sustainability and community development are implemented while establishing a technically-grounded foundation for long-term socioeconomic empowerment that enables communities and companies to profit and share value.
