World Bank Action Day 2024
in Washington

Join the NEXT World Bank Action Day:

When? Friday, April 19th, 2024 @ 12 pm (noon)
Where? In Washington, D.C.: Edward Murrow Park across from the World Bank Building, 18th Street

With our protests around the globe we demand the World Bank to:
GET OUT OF FOSSIL FUELS – NOW! 

We demand:
Disclose where public money goes!

Why?
We see tremendous harm in the lack of transparency at the World Bank Group and the IMF. Nobody knows with certainty how much public finance is going into dirty industries and harmful projects around the globe.

The darkness surrounding public finance leads to growing inequality, unjust debt, fossil fuel expansion, human rights abuses – and it needs to be dispelled now.

the fossil bank

Since the Paris Climate Agreement, the World Bank has provided at least $14.8 billion to fossil fuel projects. In 2022 alone, an additional $3.7 billion in World Bank trade finance went to oil and gas. The true number is likely much, much higher, considering there are six “Trojan Horses” through which the World Bank continues to smuggle in financing for the fossil fuel industry!

the time is now

As the 2023 World Bank Annual Meetings in Marrakech approach, all eyes are on the World Bank: the current reform on the Evolution Roadmap process presents a true window of opportunity for global development. Join us in putting pressure on the World Bank – we cannot let this opportunity to make real progress on a truly sustainable and just development model go to waste!

who are we?

We are an international coalition of NGOs. The rising temperature of the atmosphere endangers the future of our world. Meanwhile the World Bank, despite the Paris Agreement, still supports the expansion of coal, oil and gas. Through direct and indirect measures, the World Bank creates incentives for many countries to pursue the expansion of fossil energies. Our goal is to get the World Bank and its donors out of all funding for coal, oil and gas NOW.
