Why did the World Bank decide to update the International Poverty Line, and why now?
As differences in price levels across the world evolve, the global poverty line has to be periodically updated to reflect these changes. Since 2015, the last update, we have used $1.90 as the global line. As of fall 2022, the new global line will be updated to $2.15.

Water scarcity, greater water demand and changing water supplies due to climate change are severely affecting large parts of Southern Africa, including South Africa, posing a significant risk to the region. In 2019, IFC and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), launched the Agri-Processing Resource Efficiency (APRE) programme to address this challenge. The programme aims to assist the agri-processing sector in South Africa to improve sustainability and competitiveness, emphasising reductions in water use, along with related reductions in energy and fuel. The objective of this assignment is to continue the development and implementation of the APRE policy and regulatory work with local authorities and user groups in the three localities. The consultant will be required to manage partnerships with key stakeholders related to the promotion of water-use efficiency measures with a public-private sector focus.

The Government of Lao PDR (GOL) has established a policy direction for poverty alleviation and graduation from the list of Least Developed Countries.

However, further actions will be needed to strengthen the enabling environment for PPPs in Lao PDR. Therefore, GOL has requested support from the World Bank to help strengthen the PPP enabling environment and support capacity building across the PPP lifecycle, including support on managing Unsolicited Proposals and PPP related Fiscal Commitments and Contingent Liabilities.
