Broken Promises: the World Bank and Forests

Report finding that programmes funded by the World Bank Group are causing destruction of the world’s remaining forests and harming poor people dependent on forests for their survival. The report says that the Bank has failed to implement its own Forest ‘Safeguard’ Policy, adopted in 2002, and that not one of the conditions the Bank promised to fulfil has been met. The report also explores the role of the World Bank in the carbon market.

This is a joint report by FERN's Sinkswatch, the Rainforest Foundation, Global Witness, CDM Watch, Down to Earth, Forest Peoples Programme, Environmental Defense and the World Rainforest Movement.
