The World Bank Inspection Panel has released a report offering lessons on consultation, participation, and disclosure, the fourth in its Emerging Lessons Series. The series aims to contribute to learning at the World Bank, and among the global development community at large, by drawing on lessons from nearly a quarter-century of experience in dealing with the complex environmental and social cases that come to the Panel. In the last report, the lessons presented try to highlight areas in which continued improvements can enhance the Bank’s and its member countries’ overall approach to consultation, participation, and disclosure of information as tools to empower affected persons and communities to participate in development projects affecting their lives. The report is available here.
