This chapter investigates how the International Finance Corporation (IFC) became embroiled in environmental debates over its loans and guarantees. It explains that though the IFC operates separately and has different role and function than the World Bank, it has overlapping member states with similar power structures and espouses the same development norms of economic growth and poverty alleviation. This chapter describes the IFC's first big project, the controversial Pangue Dam in Chile, and examines how transnational environmental advocacy networks (TEANs) pushed for IFC to have its own environmental and social safeguard policies and information disclosure.
