Calls for World Bank to suspend funding to Honduras
Thursday, June 30, 2016
In an April speech addressing the issue of environmental and human rights abuses and displacements resulting from large dam projects, World Bank president Jim Yong Kim stated “you cannot do the kind of work we are trying to do and not have some of these incidents happen”.
Over 300 civil society organisations and individuals responded with a letter to Bank President Kim in mid-May, rejecting his statement and calling for an apology, and calling for the suspension of World Bank funds to Honduras.
