Development Displacement, Indigenous Peoples

Inclusive Development International (IDI) has put out a call for cases of forced displacement and resettlement caused by World Bank projects.  In response to a review that the World Bank is about to embark on to assess its safeguard policies, "[a] global campaign is now getting underway to push for stronger safeguards on involuntary resettlement to ensure that poor and vulnerable people are not made to shoulder the burden of development. In contribution to this campaign, IDI is collecting case studies and testimonies from around the world that illustrate why the current Bank policy and practice is failing to protect human rights."
