World Bank , in full World Bank Group , international organization affiliated with the United Nations UN and designed to finance projects that enhance the economic development of member states.
Developing countries were hit hard by the financial and economic crisis, although the impact was somewhat delayed. Every country had different challenges to master. The closer the developing countries are interconnected with the world economy, the crasser the effects. And the incipient recovery that is becoming noticeable is, for the time being, restricted to only a few countries and regions. The crisis was transmitted primarily by trade and financial flows forcing millions back into poverty. Attainment of the Millennium Development Goals is seriously jeopardised in many countries.
The World Bank is an international financial institution and is a member of the United Nations development group. During World War 2, the business classes of Europe were either supporting the Nazis or were forced to flee them. Socialists and communists had high credibility because they were seen as the leaders of the Nazi resistance. In order to prevent leftists from coming to power in Western Europe, it was crucial for the US and UK to get the business classes of Europe back into power. This required the establishment of strong institutions which would promote policies favouring development of private businesses. The fear of a post war economic depression also fostered the creation of the World Bank.

Founded at the Bretton Woods conference in , the two institutions have complementary missions. The World Bank Group provides financing, policy advice, and technical assistance to governments, and also focuses on strengthening the private sector in developing countries. The IMF keeps track of the economy globally and in member countries, lends to countries with balance of payments difficulties, and gives practical help to members. Countries must first join the IMF to be eligible to join the World Bank Group; today, each institution has member countries. Its five institutions share a commitment to reducing poverty, increasing shared prosperity, and promoting sustainable development.
Officially charged with managing the global regime of exchange rates and international payments that allows nations to do business with one another, the fund recast itself in a broader, more active role following the collapse of fixed exchange rates, intervening in developing countries from Asia to Latin America. The fund has received both criticism and credit for its efforts to promote financial stability.
Section 6. The fall of the gold standard led countries to raise trade barriers, devalue their currencies to compete against one another for export markets and curtail usage of foreign exchange by their citizens. All these factors led to declining world trade, high unemployment, and plummeting living standards in many countries. In , the Bretton Woods Agreement established a new international monetary system.
Its first goal is to end extreme poverty. Its second goal is to promote shared prosperity. The World Bank is not a bank in the conventional sense of the word. Instead, it consists of two organizations.
It now plays a central role in the management of balance of payments difficulties and international financial crises. Through the fund and other activities such as the gathering of statistics and analysis, surveillance of its members' economies, and the demand for particular policies,  the IMF works to improve the economies of its member countries. Quotas, which are pooled funds of member nations, generate most IMF funds. The size of a member's quota depends on its economic and financial importance in the world. Nations with greater economic significance have larger quotas.
Purposes. At Bretton Woods the international community assigned to the World Bank the The IMF has gone through two distinct phases in its year history.
