Dr. Ashish Manohar Urkude
Can the all the financial records be maintained and made transparent by 2015 A. D. or say by 2020 A.D. on all the Hard earned, Tax Payers Money in many countries along with the Finance Fund by WB/ IMF on all the Projects? The reason to ask this question is, unless executives are held responsible as well as accountable, the fantastic non-productive activities will not stop, and this world will not be able to meet the deadline of MDG by 2030 A.D. is what we've started believing by now. Hope, you'll touch this point, in your all important discussion, please.
Dr.Rakesh Kumar Manhar
What efforts are being taken to improve political environment across the world to reduce inequalities ?
Dr. Ananh Norasingh
The Forum serves to recognize, connect, and share knowledge with many relevant actors in the field of Social Accountability. By putting citizens at the center of development that is good. However, at the present time,you need a practical expert to solve the problems, because there are no time left.

What is motivation of donation in west society? I think donation is duty in western society...
George Cheriyan
Dear Sir, There seems to be frequent re-structuring and changes in the Bank's programmes, every three years with regard to governance work. For example, in last 10 years we have seen several programmes, World Bank Institute's Social Accountability Practice in South Asia, South Asia Social Accountability Network (SASANet), Affiliated Network for Social Accountability (ANSA) and now the GPSA. Such changes is affecting the continuity and the sustainability of governance work on the ground. By the time a programme reach the people and start gaining a momentum, it is changed by the Bank. Being the President, can you please do the needful for continuing a particular programme for a minimum period of 10 years and ensure its effectiveness.
Stefanie Conrad
Particularly marginalized group (including children) often don't have the knowledge and skills to make effective use of social accountability tools - or access public accountability mechanisms. What strategies does the Bank promote to ensure they can and do access them?
Kedar Khadka, GoGo Foundation
GPSA is a great initiative from the World Bank engaging civil society organization to viral social accountability concept globally. However, it seems that Bank has not yet been taken social accountability initiatives as "cross cutting". So, could you please ensure that this initiative is not "Just New Fashion" to romanticize civil society organization from the globe?
Kedar Khadka
Mr President, could you please ensure your commitment towards institutionalizing social accountability promotion as "cross cutting" theme for the World Bank?

Voice and Agency: Empowering Women and Girls for Shared Prosperity featuring the Hon. Hillary Rodham Clinton


Former US Secretary of State
President, World Bank Group
Executive Director, UN Women
Director, Gender & Development, World Bank Group
(Moderator) Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations

Date: Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Location: World Bank Headquarters (Preston) & Online

The persistent constraints and deprivations that prevent many of the world’s women from achieving their potential have huge consequences for individuals, families, communities, and nations. Expanding women's agency—their ability to make decisions and take advantage of opportunities—is key to improving their lives as well as the world we all share. 
-- World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, Foreword, Voice and Agency: Empowering Women and Girls for Shared Prosperity

A new World Bank report, Voice and Agency: Empowering Women and Girls for Shared Prosperity,

distills vast data and hundreds of studies to cast important new light on the constraints women and girls face worldwide, from epidemic gender-based violence to biased laws and norms that prevent them from making decisions about their own lives. These constraints are not only fundamentally unjust but economically unwise, slowing efforts to end poverty and boost shared prosperity. 

Join us for a discussion about this groundbreaking report, which focuses on freedom from violence, control over sexual and reproductive health, ownership and control of land and housing, and voice and collective action.

Dr. Jim Yong Kim, World Bank Group President, Welcome
Hon. Hillary Rodham Clinton, former U.S. Secretary of State, Keynote
