International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank)

During the fiscal year 1993 (1 July 1992 to 30 June 1993), the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank) and its affiliate, the International Development Association (IDA), continued to provide economic assistance to developing countries, emphasizing poverty reduction and expanded access to health, education and other social services. Efforts to encourage borrowers to capitalize on the positive links between poverty alleviation and sound environmental policies—while redressing the environmental damage arising from poorly conceived growth strategies—were among the Bank’s priorities. The Bank elaborated environmental strategies for several key regions and countries, expanded its research on a broad range of environmental topics, continued to integrate environmental concerns into its country-policy dialogues and undertook a series of internal reviews to improve its capacity to take account of social, cultural, resettlement and rehabilitation issues in project design and implementation.
