Argentina - Santa Fe Road Infrastructure Project : management report and recommendation in response to the inspection panel investigation report (anglais)

On October 19, 2007 the Inspection Panel registered a request for inspection, concerning the Argentina Santa Fe Road Infrastructure Project. This request for inspection is the third that the panel has received concerning this project. The first and second requests were received on August 28, 2006 and September 21, 2006, respectively, during the initial stages of project preparation. The requesters claimed that the Bank had failed to comply with its policies and procedures; specifically they were concerned about the adequacy of the compensation for land to be taken under the project, issues regarding the adequacy of the highway design, concerning in particular the water drainage aspects, and the adequacy of the communication and consultation process. The panel found that issues raised in the first and second requests were resolved to the satisfaction of the requesters. Management submitted its response to the claims in the third request to the panel on November 20, 2007. The panel found the third request eligible and recommended an investigation, authorized by the Executive Directors on May 2, 2008. The panel issued its findings from the investigation on July 2, 2009. The panel found that during project preparation there were some instances of non-compliance with some provisions of Bank policies on environmental assessment (OP 4.01) and involuntary resettlement (OP 4.12). The panel found that these instances of noncompliance were addressed during the final stages of project preparation and during initial project implementation. The panel found compliance with the Bank policy on project supervision (13.05). The only remaining instance of non compliance with OP 4.01 found by the panel refers to the lack of an adequate analysis of the project's potential impact on flooding of the areas located downstream of the road to be upgraded under the project.
