The Inspection Panel will release the third report in its Emerging Lessons Series on April 18 as part of the International Monetary Fund-World Bank Spring Meetings. The presentation and panel discussion to release the report will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. US EDT in room MC 2-800 at World Bank headquarters. The event will be livestreamed on the Panel’s website. The latest report will cover lessons from Panel cases over the last 23 years related to Environmental Assessment issues. The lessons identified in the series of reports are meant to help build the World Bank’s institutional knowledge-base, enhance accountability and contribute to more effective development. The first two reports on lessons from cases related to involuntary resettlement
and indigenous peoples
were released in 2016. The last report in the series – on cases related to consultation, participation and disclosure of information – will be released in the fall of 2017.
