|Unaligned||For every $1 the IBRD & IDA provide to fossil fuels, $1.2 goes to renewables & $0.8 & $2.0 goes to Transmission & Distribution (T&D) respectively, between 2016-2018|
For every $1 the IBRD & IDA provide to fossil fuels, $1.2 goes to renewables & $0.8 & $2.0 goes to T&D respectively, between 2016-2018. This suggests that fossil fuels are given an equivalent prioritisation to renewables within the bank.
The World Bank has met its internal climate finance target of 28% by 2020, and is now moving to an absolute quantitative target.
The World Bank has seen a large increase in adaptation financing as a percentage of its total portfolio. In 2018, adaptation financing almost equalled the level of mitigation financing at the World Bank.
Recommendation: Scale up climate investment in the energy sector to ensure fossil fuel lending is at zero across a 3-year period
