Risk and Opportunity: Key Insights from World Development Report 2014 - Webcast
Watch a panel with the World Bank Chief Economist, the Director of the WDR 2014, and top experts on risk as it relates to conflict, financial crises, and the effects of shocks on the poorest. The panel explored the 2014 World Development Report's findings and recommendations regarding how countries and communities can build resilience and boost prosperity through systematic and proactive risk management.
Recognizing that risk is inherent in the development process, the report builds on extensive data and country experience to address how individuals, institutions, and countries can stop being only “crisis fighters” and become “proactive and systematic risk managers”.
The panel was moderated by Gillian Tett, assistant editor, the Financial Times.
