EMO report nowhere to be seen – several months overdue

The 13th report by the railways rehabilitation project’s external social monitor is yet to be published, despite being several months overdue. The latest published report, available here, covers the period Oct. 16 2010 to Jan. 15 2011. That means there is no public monitoring reports available for most of 2011.

The ADB has also confirmed the 13th report by external social monitor – a company called Redecam Group that is paid for by the government – is its last report, begging the question of who is providing even the most minimal monitoring of the problem-ridden ADB and AUsAID financed railways rehabilitation project following the recent crackdown on civil society actors monitoring the project?
