Add the Independent Evaluation Group to the list.
In a searing indictment reported in the FT, the Bank's own Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) has said that Wolfowitz's continued presence at the Bank is crippling its development effectiveness.
As reported here from leaked internal postings at the Bank, the IEG finds that "the ability of staff - particularly those working in client countries - to carry out daily interactions with clients, as well as the institution's ability in convening partners, are eroding".
In what must surely be seen as fatal blow to the tenure of Managing Director Juan José Daboub, the IEG has also faulted "an increasing lack of transparency in the application of bank's development policies, for example in population, climate change, governance and anti-corruption". Daboub has found himself under attack for deleting references to family planning in Bank documents and allegedly watering down the Bank's strategy to deal with climate change.
