The World Bank Group consulted on the Evolution Process with various stakeholders globally from March 31, 2023 to July 31, 2023. The Development Committee paper, which was released at the Spring Meetings, provided the basis for the consultations. To see the consultations outreach plan, click here.
The consultation process received critical feedback from stakeholders through a combination of face-to face and virtual meetings held in Washington, D.C. and all seven regions the World Bank works in, and this multilingual online platform. Online inputs were solicited from diverse group of stakeholders, including civil society, academia, foundations, think tanks, private sector, and other development partners.
The feedback received during the consultations informed the latest Development Committee paper, which was released for discussion at the World Bank Annual Meetings in October 2023 in Marrakech. The paper was endorsed by the Development Committee.
