ODI Report Aims To Inform World Bank’s Allocation Of Resources To Achieve SDGs

Overseas Development Institute: The allocation of World Bank Group resources to leave no one behind
Paddy Carter, research fellow at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), discusses a new report examining the allocation of the World Bank Group’s resources and its role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), writing, “This report is intended to inform the response of World Bank Group (WBG) shareholders and stakeholders to the resource allocation elements of IDA18 and the Forward Look. We ask whether the allocation of WBG resources is well aligned with its twin goals of eliminating extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity, and the fundamental ambition of the SDGs: to leave no one behind” (October 2016).
