 IBRD and IDA
In addition the IBRD dispenses loans for social matters such as education and health but these loans are often linked to strict economic policies such as Structural Adjustment Programs that have often exacerbated local problems.
Unlike the IBRD the IDA makes loans at almost no interest over much longer periods of time (a 0.5% handling fee is charged) to the poorest countries.
The region that received the most loans from IBRD and IDA was East Asia and the Pacific, struggling to recover from the financial crisis of 1997-98, with US$9.8 billion, followed by Latin America and the Caribbean with US$7.7 billion.

 World Bank Group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Inside the main hall of the headquarters of the World Bank Group in Washington D.C. Together with four affiliated agencies created between 1956 and 1988, the IBRD is part of the World Bank Group.
The IBRD has 184 member governments, and the other institutions have between 140 and 176 members.
The institutions of the World Bank Group are all run by a Board of 24 Executive Directors, with each Director representing either one country (for the largest countries), or a group of countries.

Though separate legal entities, the IBRD and IDA are fully integrated institutions-they share the same staff and headquarters, report to the same president, and follow the same standards for loan appraisal and approval.
IBRD adjustment lending has ranged from 35-64 percent of total commitments over the past five years despite Bank policy not to exceed a 25 percent cap.
IBRD is recognized by the major credit rating agencies to enjoy a preferred creditor status with its borrower-shareholders, in effect, putting the IBRD first in line for debt repayment.

 [No title]
IBRD lending for social sector, poverty alleviation, and agriculture projects may increase as the volume of IDA lending declines.
In other words, the current pace of IBRD lending to China is pushing up its share of the Bankþs total loan balance, whereas the IBRDþs slower rates of current lending to Indonesia and Mexico are gradually reducing their share of the IBRDþs loan portfolio.
In effect, the share of IBRD lending for social and poverty-oriented projects would grow slightly (to perhaps $240 million over two years) if all the projects in the MOS are implemented.

 Encyclopedia: IBRD
The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD, in Romance languages: BIRD), better known as the World Bank, is an international organization whose original mission was to finance the reconstruction of nations devastated by WWII.
The IBRD is one of the highest rated borrowers on the international markets, and is thus able to borrow at relatively low interest rates.
Together with four affiliated agencies created between 1956 and 1988, the IBRD is part of the World Bank Group.

 50 Years Is Enough Network: The World Bank's Financial Components
Although the IBRD still concentrates on development it operates primarily in mid-middle-income developing countries; in FY 1994, the IBRD was funded at about $17 billion.
IBRD loans can cover the entire cost of a project, but Bank clout attracts many other sources of financing, especially from the private sector.
IDA and IBRD are often lumped in the same category, because they lend for the same purposes and focus primarily on government borrowers.

 De Groene 3 / 2004: Voorbij de clichés   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
De IBRD verstrekt leningen aan modalere landen waar het inkomen per hoofd van de bevolking lager is dan vijfduizend dollar per jaar.
Bovendien worden deskundigen en expertise uit winstgevende IBRD-projecten ingezet voor de Ida. Zo is het filiaal van de IBRD in China de voorpost van de Ida in Mongolië.
De «subsidie» van de rijke landen aan de IBRD is dus niet materieel van aard, maar zit verstopt in hun volstrekt kostenloze garantstelling.

 A Graduation Policy for the Bank's DMCs - ADB.org
According to IBRD policy, graduation reflects the achievements of a country in reaching a certain level of development, management capacity, and access to capital markets.
Rather, it implies that the special financial and technical support that IBRD provides to a graduating country is no longer justified in view of the demand from other members on limited IBRD financial and staff resources.
IBRD countries progress through a sequence of increasingly harder terms (i.e., shorter maturity and grace periods) before they finally graduate from IBRD assistance.

 IBRD borrowers pay for global public goods, G-7 agendas
The critique by Devesh Kapur, at the Harvard University Center for International Affairs, is in Volume X of the International Monetary and Financial Issues for the 1990s, published by UNCTAD, containing analytical studies for the G-24 developing country group at the IMF/World Bank.
IBRD- only borrowers press for net income to be used to lower future loan charges rather than supplementing IDA to which they have no recourse.
At least some of the earlier IBRD loans now to be written off under HIPC were "the result of projects undertaken due to political pressures of major powers and/or personal agendas of the Bank staff," says Kapur.

 Operational Manual - OP 7.20   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
For loans to member countries or government-owned entities, IBRD does not require security1 except: (a) when a project cofinancier is granted security; (b) through operation of IBRD's negative pledge clause; or (c) when it makes a loan to a non-creditworthy member or to a governmental entity of such a member.
For loans to private borrowers, IBRD may take some form of security in addition to the guarantee of the applicable IBRD member, if such security is required under the circumstances and its value would not be greatly undermined by sharing arrangements or negative pledge clauses in favor of other creditors.
When IBRD provides guarantees, the negative pledge clause is normally included in the indemnity agreements between the member country concerned and IBRD, so that the member's payment obligations to IBRD under such agreements are the same as the member's payment obligations under loan and guarantee agreements with IBRD.

That the IBRD has enough resources to fund the cancellation of all of the $13 billion[3] (NPV) additional HIPC debt owed to the World Bank group.
While trying to highlight their self proclaimed paucity of resources, the IMF and the World Bank have sought to underplay their considerable financial strength, which is underpinned by their distinctive political and financial structure and their special role within the international financial system.
The IBRD has built an accounting firewall so that the, accumulated monies in its loan loss provision accounts cannot be used to write off IDA shortfalls.
