With global economic growth expected to slow in the years to come, it will be ever more important for countries to make a concerted effort to reach the least well-off with policies and programs that can help them move upward. This event will take an in-depth look at the findings and recommendations of the WBG’s new flagship report on Poverty and Shared Prosperity, which this year has a special focus on inequality. The discussion in this event will help to further the institution’s agenda in these core areas, strengthen the WBG’s voice in the global discussion about inequality, hear from partners on how we can all work together to encourage progress, and bring to light some of the persistent challenges that countries face in improving the lives of their poorest citizens.
