New Eurodad report: Conditionality in World Bank crisis-lending to Ghana

Eurodad released a new report “Conditionality in World Bank crisis-lending to Ghana” on July 29th which finds that conditions for receiving loans are increasingly “being pushed through the side door” instead of being outlined in the loan agreements, keeping Low Income Countries under the influence of the Bank.

The paper points out that “such a development is of concern, as it decreases transparency over the reforms required by the Ghanaian government to be able to access development finance by the World Bank”. The report concludes that the Bank should give countries increased ownership and input into decisions about how to go about economic recovery in order to achieve a more sustainable development pathway.
