Webcast: World Development Report 2011
The World Development Report (WDR) 2011 ,released April 11, asks what spurs risks of violence, why conflict prevention and recovery has proven so difficult to address and what can be done by national leaders and their development, security, and diplomatic partners to help restore a stable development path in the world’s most fragile and violence-torn areas.
