The World Bank has launched a newsletter and special web interface to publicise and disseminate the research it produces. Many outside the Bank are unaware of the political influence of its research or the vast range of topics it covers. This research, which is widely distributed, plays an important agenda-setting function for the Bank, though many question the credibility of the Bank’s work (see Knowledge Bank article above).
Indonesian civil society have raised concerns that the World Bank is promoting gas and supporting further coal expansion in its new Country Partnership Framework.
