The Inspection Panel was established by identical Resolutions of the Boards of Executive Directors of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA) in 1993. In response to complaints from project-affected communities, the Inspection Panel is an independent, "bottom-up" accountability and recourse mechanism that investigates IBRD/IDA financed projects to determine whether the Bank has complied with its operational policies and procedures (including social and environmental safeguards), and to address related issues of harm.
The Inspection Panel brochure "We can make your voice be heard" is available in English as well as in the following languages for external use. If you would like to receive a copy of any of the following brochures, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
