Oxfam Position Paper on IDA20 Replenishment



Oxfam welcomed the World Bank’s effort to frontload resources from IDA19 in order to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and understands the need and urgency of replenishing IDA coffers earlier than expected. Given the tremendous financing needs, Oxfam supports a strong IDA20 replenishment. Oxfam also hopes to see a robust policy package attached to IDA20 that is appropriately ambitious for the next three years--aimed at supporting an end to this pandemic as quickly as possible, and propelling IDA countries forward towards a just economy after COVID-19 that is more equal and inclusive, that protects the planet, and that ends poverty.
