How is the World Bank Group Supporting Environmental Sustainability?

84 views

Published on

Sustainable development — particularly environmental sustainability — is a central tenet of the World Bank Group’s strategy.  IEG’s new report Results and Performance of the World Bank Group (RAP) provides a timely review of the Bank Group portfolio performance and examines how the Bank Group has mainstreamed and measured projects with potential environmental benefits.

Between FY08-10 and FY15-17, the overall share of projects or components with potential environmental benefits has increased 4 percentage points for the World Bank and IFC. However, projects with "Clean" and "Resilient" components, such as climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation, have risen, while support for "Green" project components has decreased, including in some traditional areas of environmental sustainability.

  8. 8. Independent Evaluation Group 8 Conclusion 1 • The World Bank, IFC, and MIGA have all increased their support for activities with potential environmental benefits. • For the World Bank and IFC, this has been by 4 percentage points over a decade. What would it take to do more?
  9. 9. Independent Evaluation Group 9 Conclusion 2 • The World Bank Group has increased its support for climate change mitigation and adaptation. • But many other types of environmental support have been flat and some have declined. What about the rest, beyond climate change?
  10. 10. Independent Evaluation Group 10 Conclusion 3 • Environmental support is increasing in higher income countries. • Support is concentrated in our largest client countries. Should the WBG be doing more in low income countries and small-medium clients? How?
