The World Bank's mission is to help developing countries reduce poverty and promote sustainable development. Unlike aid programs, the World Bank doesn't make grants: the Bank lends money to developing countries-and the loans are repaid. There are basically two types of Bank lending. The first type is for developing countries that are able to pay near-market interest rates. The second type of loan goes to the poorest countries who are unable to pay near-market interest rates on the money they borrow. Lending to the poorest countries is done by a World Bank affiliate, the International Development Association (IDA).
The objectives of IDRC are to initiate, encourage, support and conduct research into the developing regions of the world and into the means for applying and adapting scientific, technical and other knowledge to the economic and social advancements of those regions.
