Orsolya Székely, the Accountability Mechanism Secretary, has granted the Parties involved in a Uganda dispute resolution case an additional six months in hope for a resolution in the process. All Parties involved in the case requested more time to resolve their differences.
The case involves the Second Kampala Institutional and Infrastructure Development Project in Uganda, a World Bank-financed project that includes the construction of drainage channels to reduce the danger of flooding.
The Accountability Mechanism’s operating procedures allow for a one-year period for all parties to reach a resolution, with a six-month extension period possible. Szekely informed the World Bank Board of Executive Directors of the extension.
