Economic Monitoring

Timely analysis on global economic, financial and poverty-related developments—and their impact on World Bank member countries—is provided by the World Bank's Development Prospects Group. It leads the organization's monitoring, analyzing, and forecasting work in global macroeconomics and the Sustainable Development Goals. The Prospects Group produces the semi-annual Global Economic Prospects flagship report. It also produces the Commodity Markets Outlook each quarter, policy-relevant research on topical issues, and timely email updates on the global economy.
This quarterly report provides market analysis for major commodity groups -- energy, metals, agriculture, precious metals, and fertilizers. The latest issue examines movements in energy and food prices.
This new annual global flagship report will serve as the World Bank’s main vehicle to assess how emerging global trends are likely to affect progress towards the 2030 development agenda. It will be launched in late-2017.
This semi-annual report examines global economic developments and prospects, with a special focus on emerging markets and developing countries. The latest issue looks at divergences and risks facing the world economy.
