Summary: The Inspection Panel (IP) was created as a means for increasing the transparency and accountability of the Bank's operations. It is an independent instrument responding to claims by those adversely affected by the projects financed by the Bank. This report documents the experiences of the first four years (1994-98) through ten case summaries, verified and evaluated by the IP. Namely, the alleged violations stemming from the environmental assessment and resettlement of indigenous people under the Third Arun Hydroelectric project (Nepal); the compensation and expropriation of foreign assets in Ethiopia; the financing of equipment under the Fourth Emergency Power in Tanzania; the alleged damage to the natural environment due to the implementation of the Rondonia Natural Resources Management project in Brazil; the alleged violation in the financing of the Pangue/Ralco Hydroelectric Dams in Chile; the damage to the livelihoods of dwellers under the Jamuna Bridge project in Bangladesh; the adverse effect on local living standards due to the Yacyreta Hydroelectric project implementation in Argentina and Paraguay; intended beneficiaries of the Jute Sector Adjustment Credit in Bangladesh claimed adverse policies by the credit; the adverse effect on the living standards caused by the Itaparica Resettlement project in Brazil; and the harmful result of the Power Generation Project in Singrauli, India.
