Ending World Bank Investment in Fossil Fuels
Join us in the lead up to the World Bank Action Day
<https://worldbankactionday.org/> to hear from panellists from around the
world who are calling for an end to World Bank fossil fuel finance

The World Bank, which has a mandate to invest in development to improve the lives of communities in the global South, continues to pump <https://urgewald.org/en/medien/world-bank-annual-meeting-bank-invested-over
-105-billion-fossil-fuels-paris-agreement> billions of dollars into fossil fuels. This webinar will provide concrete examples of how the World Bank is continuing to fund fossil fuels and the impacts this has on people's lives as well as providing recommendations for the type of energy projects public finance should be investing in. It will also give further details about the World Bank Action Day and how you can get involved.

As the World Bank Annual Meetings take place and COP26 is just around the corner, the World Bank must take action. <https://twitter.com/JohnMurton/status/1443878198660550669?s=20> Some governments and institutions have announced an end to overseas fossil fuel finance, but the World Bank is lagging behind and must do more to shift its finance out of dirty fossil fuels and into clean energy that ensures safe, accessible energy for all.
