The UN issued a "new standard of whistleblower protection" in late December as part of an anti-retaliation policy, according to US NGO Government Accountability Project (GAP). GAP's Melanie Beth Oliviero says the new policy "signals the direction for reform of all specialised agencies of the UN, specifically the World Bank". The UN policy satisfies 15 out of 20 criteria in GAP's compilation of best practices for whistleblower protection; the World Bank's policy only passes 12 of the 20 tests.
