After a history of funding environmentally costly megaprojects, the World Bank now claims that it is trying to become a leading force for sustainable development. For more than a decade, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and grassroots movements have formed transnational coalitions to reform the World Bank and the governments that it funds. This book assesses the efforts of these groups to make the World Bank more publicly accountable.
The search for accountability in international institutions is a key topic in today's global agenda. This work provides a variety of useful and important examples of efforts to increase transparency and accountability in World Bank operations. --Dr. Alvaro UmaA±a, Chairman, World Bank Inspection Panel
