This session at the World Bank Annual General Meetings 2016 Civil Society Policy Forum examines development policy financing (DPF) as a tool for scaling-up positive environmental and social impact amidst the global climate crisis. It features case study findings from recent operations that represent challenges to the achievement of World Bank climate and forest commitments and to the current model of assessing DPF for social and environmental risk. The session also provides space for discussion of policy recommendations based on lessons learned from the recent safeguards review to ensure that DPF supports low-carbon, pro-poor outcomes.
