How we work with companies

IFC’s Infrastructure and Natural Resources Advisory team works both with individual firms (mostly IFC investment clients) and at the sector level to increase benefits to local communities and mitigate social risks. Our work with oil and gas, mining, agribusiness, forestry and infrastructure industries enhances value creation with local communities and regional governments.
