I'm trying to cite "Foreign Direct Investment, Backward Linkages, and Productivity Spillovers", a World Bank report using the Cite Them Right 10th edition - Harvard style. When I use the \cite function in overleaf I get (Jordaan et al., 2020), instead of (World Bank, 2020) and I need help fixing this.

I'm using Zotero to manage my references so I don't want to change it manually if I can help it. Thanks

This is the code I am using to format my references in Latex.

% bibliography-related packages
\usepackage[round]{natbib}
\usepackage{har2nat}
\bibliographystyle{agsm}
\usepackage{filecontents}

The code in my bib file is

@techreport{jordaan_foreign_2020,
title = {Foreign {Direct} {Investment}, {Backward} {Linkages}, and {Productivity} {Spillovers}},
url = {https://ideas.repec.org/p/wbk/wboper/33761.html},
abstract = {No abstract is available for this item.},
language = {en},
number = {33761},
urldate = {2020-06-15},
institution = {The World Bank},
author = {Jordaan, Jacob and Douw, Wim and Qiang, Christine Zhenwei},
month = may,
year = {2020},
note = {Publication Title: World Bank Other Operational Studies},
keywords = {FDI}
}

    In cases like this I think it is perfectly fine to give the author names instead of the corporate entity. If you insist on having "World Bank" as author in the citation, the easiest way is to put author = {{World Bank}}, in the author field instead of the actual author names.
