Projects & Programs

The World Bank supports social protection and labor programs in developing countries as a central part of its mission to reduce poverty through sustainable and inclusive growth. The Bank almost tripled its social protection and labor lending in the last few years to help countries respond to the food, fuel and financial crises -- from an annual average of $1.6 billion in 1998-2008, to an annual average of $4.2 billion for 2009-2011.
