Human Rights Watch investigates human rights abuses in which international financial institutions like the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and regional development and investment banks have been implicated. We have exposed discrimination in the distribution of development aid, efforts that have outright harmed community members, and reprisals against critics of “development” initiatives. We advocate for these institutions to recognize their rights obligations and uphold human rights through their policies and practices. We press governments that partner with these institutions and ultimately implement the projects to ensure that human rights are respected. We ask that governments that oversee these institutions ensure that the rights impacts of projects are understood, that projects that will violate rights are not funded, and that institutional policies advance, rather than undermining human rights.
Tanzania and ZanzibarMnamo Machi 31, 2020, Bodi ya Wakurugenzi wa Benki ya Dunia iliidhinisha mkopo wenye utata wa kiasi cha Dola za Marekani 500 Milioni kwa serikali ya Tanzania kwa ajili ya program ya elimu ya sekondari. Msingi wa utata huu ni utekelezaji wa marufuku ya shule huko Tanzania iliyowekwa na Rais John Magufuli tangu 2017 ambayo inawabagua wanafunzi wenye ujauzito, wenye watoto na walioolewa. Katika wiki za hivi karibuni, kumekuwa na mkanganyiko mkubwa juu ya msimamo wa serikali ya Tanzania katika suala la kuwaruhusu wasichana wajawazito kusoma katika shule za umma.
