Campaign Victory: World Bank Suspends Funding for REGROW

REGROW project suspended

Campaign Victory

On April 18, 2024, the World Bank suspended financing to the Resilient Natural Resource Management for Tourism and Growth (REGROW) project in Tanzania after a year of relentless advocacy by the Oakland Institute on behalf of communities facing evictions and egregious human rights abuses as a result of the project.

This rare decision by the Bank is a critical step towards justice for the millions of Indigenous victims of forced evictions and abuses for the sake of tourism revenue.
