This chapter shows how multilateral agencies provided developing countries with more than $75 billion in environmental aid between 1980 and 2000. It presents descriptive statistics on environmental aid funds that are allocated by multilateral agencies. It specifies which of these International Organizations (IOs) deliver the most money, and which governments give the most to these organizations. It then presents brief case studies of four multilateral agencies which are major distributors of environmental aid: the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the Global Environmental Facility, and the OPEC Fund for International Development. It focuses on the struggle between the World Bank and the US Congress over environmental impacts of its funding, since these were some of the most influential battles in the ‘greening’ of the multilaterals.

Keywords:   multilateral environmental aid, aid allocation, international organizations, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, Global Environmental Facility, OPEC
