The World Bank Group is one of the world's largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries. It uses financial resources and extensive experience to help our client countries to reduce poverty, increase economic growth, and improve quality of life. To ensure that countries can access the best global expertise and help generate cutting-edge knowledge, the World Bank Group is constantly seeking to improve the way it works. Key priorities include delivering measurable results, promoting openness and transparency in development, and improving access to development information and data.
The Poverty Reduction and Economic Management (PREM) Network is the professional alliance of staff throughout the Bank that work on Public Sector Governance; Economic Policy and Trade, Poverty Reduction, and Gender. Within these thematic areas, the main PREM Network Anchor objectives are to: build and apply global knowledge; renew and strengthen staff skills; foster innovative and strategic thinking; and improve the quality of products and services to client countries and partners.
The Africa Region, which is comprised of approximately 1600 staff members of whom around 60% are based in 38 field offices, is committed to helping Africa realize its considerable development potential, with a focus on employment generation. While the overall business climate in Africa is the weakest in the world, several countries--including some fragile states--have made great strides in improving their environment for business. What is emerging as a result is a growing region, with setbacks from time to time, that is increasingly seen as a destination for investment as much as for aid; and one where leaders are increasingly willing to address problems of mis-governance that harm development effectiveness. The Africa Region plans to seize this unprecedented opportunity to better support our clients in realizing the ambition of eradicating extreme poverty and boosting prosperity.
