In June a conference was held at Chatham House in London to discuss “Increasing the Contribution of International Financial Institutions to Sustainable Development in the run up to Rio+10”. Speakers from the World Bank, NGOs, bilateral NGOs and academia discussed the World Bank’s record and potential, as well as newer institutional arrangements such as the Global Environment Facility and the Montreal Protocol.
