Environment and Natural Resources

Title: 

Environment and Natural Resources

 

Environmental concerns such as pollution, erosion and deforestation affect everyone, but the poorest countries have the most to lose. They are impacted the most by environmental destruction, and have the fewest resources available to adapt. Therefore, addressing environmental degradation and ensuring environmental sustainability greatly affect the World Bank Group’s mandate to reduce poverty and improve lives.

IEG has perfomed evaluations of the World Bank Group’s strategies and experience dealing with environmental issues. These evaluations aim to provide an opportunity for the institution to learn from the past experiences and to inform emerging strategies and programs.
