Titling programme to be investigated

The World Bank Inspection Panel said it will investigate the bank’s Land Management and Administration Project (LMAP), a land-titling project that some housing rights advocates say deprived families living near Boeung Kak lake of the chance to secure ownership of their land. In a notice dated March 31, the panel responded to a September investigation request made by Boeung Kak residents who said LMAP had hurt their chances of obtaining land titles. More than 4,000 families are facing eviction from land around the lake to make way for a 133-hectare development project. Neither the panel’s notice nor World Bank representatives in Phnom Penh indicated when the investigation would be finished. james o’toole
