ON-LINE DEBATE: WDR ON POVERTY 2000/01

Between 21st February and 31st March, 2000 a global on-line debate will take place on the World Bank's World Development Report on Poverty 2000/01 (WDR), to be independently moderated by the Bretton Woods Project and New Policy Institute.

Please alert potential participants, particularly in the 'South', via your existing outreach networks, particularly in governments, research institutes and NGO's. (Submissions to the debate are welcome in French or Spanish and if required we can send out copies of publicity material in these languages).

In September 2000 the World Bank will publish its once-a-decade World Development Report on Poverty (see www.worldbank.org/poverty/wdrpoverty ). The World Bank's research reports have a significant impact on development thinking and programmes and generate major global press coverage. The WDR is the Bank's flagship publication, and over 150,000 copies are printed, a large number of which will be distributed free across the world.

For the first time ever, the Bank is widely circulating a draft WDR. The Bretton Woods Project and New Policy Institute have been selected to independently run a global online discussion of the draft. Significantly, the Bank is assigning great importance to the debate, and Ravi Kanbur, lead author of the WDR will respond to the final conference summary. Participation is your opportunity to voice comments on the draft and potentially influence the final report.

To SIGN UP, and for further information on how the conference will work, please see the web-sites for
