CAO is shocked and saddened by the situation in Ukraine and concerned for the safety and well-being of our colleagues, complainants, IFC and MIGA clients, and other parties involved in our work in the country.

For the present time, CAO is suspending work on cases that require engagement with parties in Ukraine. We will continue to monitor the situation closely with a view to recommencing our work as soon as possible.

CAO reiterates the statements made by World Bank Group President, David Malpass, and other Bank Group leaders in expressing its strong support and commitment to the people of Ukraine.
