IDA at Work

Burundi builds climate-resilient roads

Extreme weather in Burundi has put the nation's roads at high risk of flooding and landslides. An IDA-supported transport project is helping the country build climate-resilient roads, create jobs and increase access to schools and markets.


An IDA-financed project is helping install 20,000 solar homes systems in Bangladesh every month, making it the fastest growing solar home systems program in the world. As of 2016, the project had provided access to electricity for nearly 5 million people in rural Bangladesh.
