What will it take to end poverty?

The 2012 Annual Meetings and related events begin in Japan on October 9. We've compiled a guide here to some of the LIVE webcasts happening during the meetings. From wherever you are around the world, you can also follow the conversation all week via #wblive on Twitter.

Several webcasts will be available in multiple languages. Watch them live, follow live tweeting and find coverage throughout the meetings in Arabic, English, French, Japanese, and Spanish. You'll find photo coverage on Flickr and videos on YouTube.

We also invite you to take part in our global conversation: #whatwillittake to end poverty? We are hearing from people around the world about what they think it will take to end poverty, expand prosperity, and improve their communities.

We hope you join us online for the Annual Meetings and share your ideas via #whatwillittake.

We’ve listed below several of the language options for panels and sessions – you can also watch webcasts in Japanese for many of the Annual Meetings events.
