The 2019 World Development Report (WDR) will look at the changing landscape of work and explore the implications for future labor markets. Increasing automation, the rise of the gig economy, and shifts in global trade and investment, as well as demographic change and urbanization, are all shaping demand and supply for different skillsets. The Report will analyze the impact of these forces, showcase data on returns to experience, and consider how individuals, companies and governments can respond. Consultations will open in February 2018 upon release of the briefing materials. More information will be posted on the Consultation Hub in the coming weeks.

Consultations for the Myanmar Flood and Landslide Emergency Recovery Project - Environmental and Social Safeguards

The Ministry of Construction (MOC) and the Department of Rural Development (DRD) of the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries, and Rural Development will be holding public consultations on the Myanmar Flood and Landslide Emergency Recovery Project from March to April 2016 with support from the World Bank.

The devastating floods and landslides from July to September 2015 caused significant economic hardship to the livelihoods of millions, disproportionally affecting the poor and vulnerable. It is estimated that the total economic value of the effects of the floods and landslides was approximately US$1.5 billion, equivalent to 3.1 percent of the GDP in 2014/2015.

The proposed Myanmar Flood and Landslide Emergency Recovery project, which is under preparation, will support the recovery in priority disaster-affected areas. The project will finance the climate-resilient rehabilitation of damaged national and rural roads and bridges in line with building-back better principles. Where appropriate, the works will use labor-intensive methods to support livelihoods and create jobs while simultaneously repairing the transport infrastructure and increasing access to basic services.
