What is your role within the World Bank? How does your department contribute to reducing poverty in the world?
Ever since early 2017 I am a Financial Management Specialist within the Governance Global Practice (GGP). GGP constitutes one of 14 operational branches (Global Practices or GPs) of the World Bank. It’s development interventions result in stronger, more efficient and accountable institutions leading to enhanced service delivery. As such I am involved in designing and operating Governance projects (lending, Technical Assistance) to a range of African countries. Through a well-functioning public sector, with capable civil servants and sound and accountable public finances, client countries can better provide public services and consequently improve citizens’ socio-economic outcomes.
