The bank released a 59-page climate action plan Thursday designed to help less developed nations meet global warming goals that countries set last December in Paris. The international financial organization plans to increase its $2.3 billion-a-year spending on climate change to $3.5 billion a year by 2020. Officials hope to spur $13 billion a year in similar private investments.
The bank also plans to help developing countries add 30 gigawatts of electricity to power 150 million homes without emissions of heat-trapping gases.
