Fighting Fraud and Corruption

The World Bank is supporting multiple efforts to combat corruption in the countries it supports and to ensure projects financed by the World Bank are free of misconduct or fraud. If you have evidence of corruption, you can submit your complaint through the World Bank Department of Institutional Integrity.

Citizen Feedback

If you feel your interests have been or could be directly harmed by a project financed by the World Bank, please contact the Bank's Inspection Panel. The Inspection Panel is an independent body created in 1993 by a resolution of the Bank's Board of Executive Directors and is the first of its kind to give voice to private citizens in an international context.
