“At the World Bank, can record keeping stay ahead of infrastructure shift?” – Devex – March 5, 2015

On March 5, 2015 Dexex reported that on March 4, 2015 President Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank, admitted “ that no one is sure how many people that were displaced because of bank projects between 1990 and 2010 were resettled or compensated fairly. Kim told reporters in a phone conference Wednesday that “we must and will do better,” adding that “resettlements are likely to grow” as the bank increases its portfolio of infrastructure projects.

In more than half of the bank’s projects from 1990 to 2010, managers did not report how and whether displaced populations were compensated, according to a random sampling conducted by the bank last year and released Wednesday.”
