Who wants to be a development genius?


This page in:

What do more people worldwide have access to, a mobile phone or a toilet? By 2050, how much is global population projected to grow? During the World Bank Group – IMF Annual Meetings, we invite you to test your development knowledge and take our Who Wants to Be a Development Genius quiz.   

If you are like me, and take comfort in being “a type”, then you will enjoy taking our #DevGenius challenge. All you need to do is answer 10 questions. Get 1-3 correct and you are a Development Novice, 4-7 correct you are a Development Expert and if you get 8-10 correct, you are a Development Genius!  Tell us in the comments below how you did.

If you are taking the quiz online, share your results on Twitter using #DevGenius for a chance to be included in our #WBGMeetings highlights on social media.   

If you are attending the Annual Meetings in person here in Washington DC, come by the Digital Media Zone in the World Bank Atrium and take the challenge. Film yourself while answering the questions and share on Twitter and Instagram using #DevGenius. We'll be looking for geniuses to include in our end of day highlights throughout the Annual Meetings.  

Have fun learning more about international development and yourself, and don’t forget to share your results!   

Don’t miss a minute of the Annual Meetings. Tune in on World Bank Live to follow the action every day.

Poverty across the world is not the same in impact and consumption potential. Can there be a uniform measure on the consumption basics or in monetary term using PPP, sothat an uniform policy prescription across the world can be made and elimination of poverty becomes easier.

I made good score still I would say a few figure were surprising. Such as countries need to spend 4.5% of GDP to achieve SDGs. I consider it a fair deal and something to adopt on priority.

Development in poverty eradication is not achieving its required goals because we are not providing nature based solutions to all the development projects hence facing the severe problems of Climate Change, Political/Geopolitical/Trade conflicts reversing our efforts to development. Hence a Green Infrastructure Energy Solutions backed by state-of-the-art Geo Technological tools in the field of Environment, Land use and Trade is the approach required to address these problems.
