Helping the Poorest Countries Recover from the COVID-19 Crisis

Partnering For Green, Resilient And Inclusive Development In Tanzania

Tanzania has seen sustained growth over the past two decades, but like many developing countries, COVID-19 has taken its toll. Investing in human capital, focused on empowering women and girls, is particularly important at this time. The World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA) has been supporting Tanzania’s development, especially in their efforts to address the gender gap. The World Bank's Managing Director of Development Policy and Partnerships, Mari Pangestu, writes more in her latest piece.

How a Novel Financing Tool Is Helping Bring The Private Sector Into Difficult Markets

Seventy-four of the world’s most-impoverished countries, including 39 African states, are eligible to receive funding from the International Development Association (IDA), which provides states with grants and low or zero-interest loans. But it has long been clear that in those countries, governments alone cannot deliver the jobs, schools, hospitals, sanitation systems and power infrastructure necessary to end decades of poverty. States need the help of the private sector.
