[Global Environmental Governance Series. Burlington: Ashgate Publishing, 241-258.

Export Credit Agencies (ECAs) play a substantial role in the financing of infrastructure in developing countries. As the activities of ECAs are backed-up by public resources, national governments have the power to set guidelines for ECA lending policies. Most governments include social and environmental aspects in their ECA guidelines. This book section takes a closer look at the role of transparency, information disclosure and participation in the cover decisions of ECAs.

The Book is available at the price of Euro 91,10 Euro e.g. on the Internet via Amazon.
