World Bank Influence Curbed by ‘New’ Donors

The World Bank is losing influence in Cambodia to “emerging donors” and making no major headway in stemming corruption, the Bank’s Independent Evaluation Groups said in a report released Wednesday. Specifically focused on the World Bank;s 2007 anti-corruption initiative through 2010, the report uses six countries – including Cambodia – as case studies. The other countries are Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Guatemala, Liberia and Moldova.
