In 2009, the World Bank envisioned “open” in exactly the same way you “see” the word . . . an open door . . . and waiting behind the door . . . access to buildings and ideas, people and events.  And in the Bank’s case, access to a plethora of information on projects throughout the world, current ‘of the moment’ information on open projects, outcomes and lessons learned culled from closed projects, small grants that showed impact and improvement, research into cutting edge topics that affect everybody like climate change and displacement, and much more.

Earlier this week, the Development Committee released the papers they will discuss at their meeting on Sunday, April 26.

Among other issues, they will discuss the current global economic crisis and "voice" (ensuring people from all parts of the world have a say in key issues that affect them).

The Development Committee (DC) is a forum of the World Bank and the IMF that facilitates intergovernmental consensus-building on development issues. Its mandate is to advise the Boards of Governors of the Bank and the IMF on critical development issues and on the financial resources required to promote economic development in developing countries.
Log in on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. to watch the press briefing with DC Chair, Minister Agustín Carstens, World Bank President Robert Zoellick, and IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
