Description

On April 12, 2019, the Inspection Panel received a Request for Inspection of the World Bank-financed Nairobi Metropolitan Services Improvement Project (P107314). The Requesters’ concerns relate to plans to redevelop the area in which they live. They allege that such plans are being financed under the project and will result in evictions of community members and the demolition of cultural and historical facilities, which they claim are of “sentimental value” to the community members. The Requesters are concerned that a planned household survey may not be adequately conducted since previous ones “neglected to capture” all residents. They claim that the earlier land-take in their area was not legal, and based on “skewed public participation.” The Panel issued a Notice of Registration in response to the Request for Inspection on May 13, 2019. Panel Member Ramanie Kunanayagam and Senior Operations Officer Serge Selwan visited Kenya from June 19 to 23, 2019 and met with a variety of stakeholders.
