The World Bank provides loans and technical assistance to developing countries for improvement of the physical and economic well-being of the people. A major portion of its lending is for water related projects and, more broadly, undertakings that may affect the country's or region's environment. Through established policies and criteria, Bank staff guide and evaluate projects from preparation through execution so they may meet the direct objectives while complying with sound environmental and water management principles.
