Description

In July 2005, Rights and Accountability in Development, a UK-based non-governmental organization wrote to the President of the World Bank Group, Paul Wolfowitz, on behalf of a number of NGOs, alleging a number of failures in the due diligence undertaken by MIGA. Subsequently, former President Wolfowitz requested that CAO audit MIGA’s due diligence with a particular focus on security and human rights. The CAO’s audit focused on security and conflict; adherence to MIGA’s environmental and social review procedures; and new commitments under the Extractive Industries Review (EIR) Management Response.
