    Unaccountable Accounting: The World Bank’s unreliable climate finance reporting

    Despite being the largest multilateral provider of climate finance, the World Bank supplies very little evidence to support its claims about the amount of climate finance it provides. Oxfam has attempted to recreate the Bank’s reported climate finance figures using public information for projects in the Bank’s FY2020.

    Oxfam found that the Bank’s current climate finance reporting processes are such that its claimed levels of climate finance cannot be independently verified and could be off by as much as $7bn, or 40%.

    Without better disclosure practices, the World Bank is asking us to take much on faith. Climate finance funding is too important for us to do that. The World Bank must be more transparent in its reporting so that it can be held to account.

On the other side of the Arabian Sea, Somalia is experiencing its worst drought for 40 years with crops failing and livestock dying. Our climate isn’t just changing, it has changed. Climate change is fueling hunger for millions of people around the world. Extreme weather events have increased five-fold over the past 50 years1 , destroying homes, decimating livelihoods, fueling conflict and displacement, and deepening inequality.
