Development and climate change : the World Bank Group at work (Inglês)

The World Bank Group (WBG) works with developing country partners and provides them customized demand-driven support through its various instruments, from financing to technical assistance to policy advice. Over the past year, a new level of partnership has been established, with developing country governments participating in governing innovative climate finance vehicles such as the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), and the Carbon Partnership Facility (CPF). In addition, a number of partnerships with national and sub-national (state, city) governments on various issues in the development-climate change nexus have been built by different sector, region, and country teams. To advance the international dialogue on development and climate change, Bank Group President Robert Zoellick launched the 'Bali dialogue series,' which seeks to engage ministers of finance, economy, and development from both developed and developing countries in discussions about climate finance solutions. This dialogue allows some 40 to 50 ministers and heads of multilateral agencies to meet twice annually in an informal setting to discuss selected aspects of the climate change agenda and its links to the development needs of developing countries. The first three events addressed adaptation and development (spring 2008), the carbon market (autumn 2008), and most recently in April 2009, climate finance.
