EDS15 Home

The Office of the Executive Director for Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Philippines, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago have played an important role at articulating the interest and desires of their governments since they joined the World Bank Group (WBG). Our constituency includes: IDA graduates, one IDA recipient and IDA contributor countries; one G20 member and four G24 members. Our constituency is also one of the twelve G11 chairs.

We actively engage in the decision-making process of the WBG  Board with our countries’ individual and collective interests as well as the Bank’s interest being our key concern. In doing so, we carry out consultations and negotiations with other Executive Director Offices. As of November 2014, our chair became a member of the Budget Committee (BC) and the Committee on Development Effectiveness (CODE). We also enthusiastically participate in deliberations of the other Board Standing Committees, i.e. Audit Committee, Committee on Governance and Administrative Matters (COGAM) and Human Resources Committee (HRC).

Under the leadership of our Executive Director, Mr. Otaviano Canuto, and that of our Alternate Executive Director, Ms. Diana Quintero, as well as with the support from our senior advisors, advisors, and hardworking support staff, EDS15 continuously maintains a constructive dialogue with the country authorities, management, and staff. We work as a team and, although our staffs come from different countries, each and every one of us is at the service of all the member countries of the constituency.

In conformity with our authorities’ directives, the chairs’ priorities include:

  • Ensuring that the Bank’s decisions, actions and activities are driven by its clients’ demand;
  • Mainstreaming South-South Cooperation;
  • Promoting the use of country systems;
  •  Encouraging the IFC to embrace new challenges;
  • Harmonize staff incentive systems with corporate development goals and objectives;
  • Ensuring that Haiti’s reconstruction remains a priority on the Bank’s agenda;
  • Strengthening the Bank’s partnership and collaboration with other development partners.

We are united in pursuing the WBG’s urgent mission and along with management and staff we are implementing the critical changes needed to deliver results for our clients.

Allocation of Votes by Organization

Member countries are allocated votes at the time of membership and subsequently for additional subscriptions to capital.  Votes are allocated differently in each organization.

 

IBRD: Each member receives votes consisting of share votes (one vote for each share of the Bank's capital stock held by the member) plus basic votes (calculated so that the sum of all basic votes is equal to 5.55 percent of the sum of basic votes and share votes for all members).

IFC: Each member receives votes consisting of share votes (one vote for each share of IFC's capital stock held by the member) plus basic votes (calculated so that the sum of all basic votes is equal to 5.55 percent of the sum of basic votes and share votes for all members).

IDA: Each member receives the votes it is allocated under IDA replenishments according to the rules established in each IDA replenishment resolution. Votes consist of subscription votes and membership votes.

MIGA: Each member receives votes consisting of share votes (one vote for each share of MIGA's capital stock held by the member) plus parity votes, calculated so that the aggregate number of votes of category 1 and category 2 members is the same. Members choose which category they want to join at the time of membership.  Category 1 members were originally defined as developed countries and category 2 members as developing countries.
