The Chad-Cameroon Oil & Pipeline Project: a project non-completion report
Study | 1 May 2007
With the production of its Project Implementation Completion Report (ICR) in December 2006, the World Bank signaled that its role in the Chad-Cameroon pipeline project had ended. However, numerous outstanding environmental, livelihood and compensation problems remain for those impacted by the project. This report argues that the World Bank must revisit the Extractive Industries Review’s recommendations and fundamentally rethink its approach to extractive industries and other high risk projects if these types of investment are to be more than a reckless gamble with the lives of the poor.
