Critical website about the World Bank and the IMF

Adaptation projects, especially in developing countries, often fall into realm of the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund -- two famously dysfunctional institutions. A website called the Bretton Wood Project bills itself as a source for "critical voices" about these two international organizations.

I turned up a trenchant and content-rich debate about carbon trading, pro and con, but I'm bookmarking it to see what else turns up there. So much of what needs to happen in the climate struggle is going to have to flow through one of these places, and the more people watching them, the better.
