IDA Discussions Start
News||15 January 1998|update 08|
Paula Donovan, the World Bank staff member in charge of raising funds for the Bank's soft loan arm the International Development Association (IDA), has undertaken a series of meetings designed to reassure parliamentarians and NGOs. Her main arguments are that IDA money is allocated to countries which are performing best, that project implementation is improving, with an increasing focus on the social sectors.
UK and other NGOs have begun to discuss approaches to IDA ahead of the first meeting of donor government representatives in late February and have written to Ms. Donovan asking for information on various issues.
The letter concludes by asking how the Bank will increase the transparency of the IDA negotiations.
