  • Established in 1944, the WBG is one of the world’s largest sources of funding and knowledge for development solutions. In fiscal year 2018, the WBG committed $67 billion in loans, grants, equity investments and guarantees to its members and private businesses, of which $24 billion was concessional finance to its poorest members. It is governed by 188-member countries and delivers services out of 120 offices with nearly 15,000 staff located globally. 

    The WBG consists of five specialized institutions: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), the International Development Association (IDA), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). The World Bank is organized into six client-facing Regional Vice-Presidencies, several corporate functions and thirteen Global Practices to bring best-in-class knowledge and solutions to regional and country clients.

    The vision of the WBG is the eradication of extreme poverty by reducing the number of people living on less than $1.25 a day to 3 percent by 2030 and the promotion of shared prosperity by fostering income growth of the bottom 40 percent in each country.  To achieve that vision, in 2013 the WBG Board of Governors approved a strategy for the organization.  The strategy leverages the combined strength of the WBG institutions and their ability to partner with the public and private sectors to deliver customized development solutions backed by finance, world class knowledge and convening services.  It has three components: (i) maximizing developing impact by engaging country clients in identifying and tackling the most difficult development challenges; (ii) promoting scaled-up partnerships that are strategically aligned with the goals; and (iii) crowding in public and private resources, expertise and ideas.
