Bad record for World Bank projects

, : Bad record for World Bank projects. D + C, Development and Cooperation ( 5): 23-24

This article discusses the way in which World Bank projects have been criticized by activists for causing environmental damage and social destruction in poor countries, and how a recent internal Bank study by W. Wapenhans claimed over a third of the Bank's projects to be failures. Some activists are suggesting that Bank loans have paid for environmental and social destruction in poor countries, through its excessive lending for development projects such as dams and roads.
