Poverty Reduction and the World Bank

Price: $ 22

Improvements in social indicators have been substantial over the past 25 years, but they have not been the same for those at the top and bottom of the distribution. In fact, the social indicators for those at the bottom have worsened. in some cases, substantially. This annual publication reports on World Bank activities in fiscal year 1999 and provides an overview of what the Bank is doing to help countries face the challenge of reducing poverty. It also looks at the future of Bank assistance at the national, global and community levels. Action on these three fronts represents the beginnings of a new strategic direction, to be formulated in an implementation note after discussion of the World Development Report 2000/2001 on poverty is complete. This new strategic direction includes a major program of knowledge-sharing dissemination, training, and informed debate, centered around the World Development Report and the Poverty Reduction Strategy Sourcebook.
