Africa Investigates, Ep. 1: "Evicted and Abandoned"



World Policy Institute — Since 2004, World Bank-financed projects have physically or economically displaced an estimated 3.4 million people — forcing them from their homes, taking some or all of their land, and damaging their livelihoods. On the inaugural episode of the Africa Investigates podcast, host Chris Roper speaks with three of the 50 reporters who worked with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), with assistance from the African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR) and The Huffington Post to investigate how the World Bank continually fails to protect those it seeks to help.
