World Bank Group Environment Strategy

The World Bank Group (WBG) is preparing a new Environment Strategy to be presented to the Board of Executive Directors by December 2010. The new Strategy will propose an approach for achieving environmental sustainability at the WBG to ensure that its support to client countries leads to sustainable development outcomes. The WBG has made progress as an advocate for the environment since 1990, has not reached the level of full environmental sustainability to which it aspires. It is for this reason that it is updating the current Strategy, along with IFC and MIGA as active partners, and inviting people to share their insights and knowledge. The Group is also undertaking inclusive and transparent consultations with all WBG stakeholder groups, including governments, the private sector, civil society and representatives of vulnerable communities.
