The Bank is striving to increase both the quantity and quality of NGO involvement in Bank-financed projects. The Bank and NGOs have most often worked together in agriculture and rural development projects, and have also frequently collaborated in infrastructure and urban development and population, health, and nutrition. Africa and South Asia remain the regions with the largest numbers of NGO-associated projects. The geographical distribution of NGO participation in Bank-financed projects has broadened in recent years to include regions such as East Asia and Latin America.

The Bank has also organized a number of workshops for exchanging information with NGOs on operational procedures and priorities. The first such workshop was held in July 1994 at World Bank headquarters. Following this successful experience, it was decided to concentrate on workshops within developing countries. The first of these was held in Tanzania in January 1995 and was attended by more than 60 participants, including a large number of community-based local NGOs, international NGOs, government officials, and donor and UN agency representatives.

A variety of institutions will be eligible for financing from the proposed fund, including NGOs, credit unions, cooperatives, and private business associations. Guidelines for requesting agencies were approved in early 1996 and are available in English, French and Spanish. For further information, NGOs may contact the CGAP Secretariat at the address listed in Annex A.
