The WORLD BANK


Item #d91nov100

The World Bank, which released its second annual progress report on the environment (see Reports/General Interest and Policy, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Nov. 1991), is under fire by environmental groups because of the small amount of annual investment it devotes to promote energy conservation and efficiency in developing countries (New Scientist, p. 14, Oct. 19). This and other recent criticisms of the bank's environmental policies are challenging its new environmental director, Mohamed El-Ashry, formerly of the World Resources Institute (see interview in ibid., p. 49, Nov. 2).
