Overall, the WB offered five credits for dams, irrigation, and other agricultural infrastructure projects. Until 1985, all the WB’s funding remained project based (Aysu 2002). The fifth of these credits, which came in 1985, was different from the previous ones because, for the first time, the credit was given for the whole sector and not just for a single project; it was titled “agriculture sector adjustment credit”.
