While the Department of Private Sector Operations (PSOD) closed this year with $2.4 billion in financing, the AfDB fell well below that level in the following years and is clearly not on track to meet its stated target of 50% private sector financing by 2020. Critics also point out that the PSOD is the only department that actually makes money for the AfDB. As the vast majority of loans are granted to concessional loans (sub-markets) to the public sector, the AfDB therefore faces significant financial difficulties and continuous operating losses. Oxfam Australia has criticised the Asian Development Bank for its insensitivity to local communities. “These banks, operating globally and internationally, can undermine people`s human rights through projects that have a negative impact on poor and marginalized communities.”  The bank has also been criticized by the United Nations Environment Programme, which said in a report that “much of the growth has bypassed more than 70 percent of the rural population, many of whom depend directly on natural resources for their livelihoods and incomes.” . . 1Related parents refer to the spouse, children, mother, father, brother and sister, niece, nephew, aunt and uncle. .
