Panel to Release New Advisory Report, Host Discussion on Responding to Project-Related GBV Complaints 

The Inspection Panel on December 9 will host a virtual discussion on responding to gender-based violence (GBV) complaints related to international development projects. 

The discussion—which will be streamed live on YouTube at this link—will coincide with the publication of the sixth report in the Panel’s Emerging Lessons Series. The report – titled “Insights of the World Bank Inspection Panel: Responding to Project Gender-Based Violence Complaints Through an Independent Accountability Mechanism” – is based on two Panel investigations involving GBV in World Bank-funded projects in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

The report is being released during the “16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence” campaign. It will be available on the Panel’s website on December 8.
