Eurodad reaction to the finalisation of IDA20 Replenishment

Yesterday, the World Bank announced a US$93 billion package to replenish the International Development Association (IDA) - a financing package to help the world’s poorest countries. However, the Bank failed to provide details about how the funds will be allocated and the channels through which they will be spent. Eurodad urges the World Bank to publish all details of the IDA20 replenishment as soon as possible.
