The newsletter ‘Development Works‘ opens with the success story of Dutch company Elsevier.
Over the last 12 years Elsevier has been working together with the World Bank (and other multilateral organizations) to support activities in emerging economies to enhance higher education and research, develop better science and technology, and improve local competitiveness.
In the article Elsevier highlights their most important successes with the World Bank of the last few years and their motivation to stay ahead of the expected challenges of Industry 4.0, as well as their commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Further more an introduction of the new President of the World Bank David Malpass was published.
And if you have missed the IMF/World Bank Group Spring Meetings or are interested in what was said during the key events in that week, you can find the most important events of the Meetings on World Bank Live.
To support the sustainable extraction and processing of minerals and metals that are used in clean energy technologies, such as wind, solar, and batteries for energy storage the World Bank created a facility on climate-smart mining. It will focus on helping resource-rich developing countries benefit from the increasing demand for minerals and metals, while keeping the environment and climate footprint as minimal as possible.
The report on the progress of SDG7 Energy, as well as the latest tenders, events and most popular blogs can also be found in the newsletter.
