More than 3.4 million people have been physically or economically displaced by projects funded by the World Bank, according to an investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, The Huffington Post and more than 20 other media partners.
The organization has regularly failed to meet its own policies, falling short of protecting people from harm caused when dams, power plants and other projects cause displacement.
The series is told in several parts, including a prologue, overview and a handful of close-up looks at specific regions that have been affected. One story examines how mass evictions in Ethiopia are tied to a World Bank project.
The project is the culmination of 11 months of reporting by more than 50 journalists from 21 countries.
