Every October, the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund (IMF) come together for our joint Annual Meetings. There, thousands of delegates from around the globe convene to discuss the world’s most pressing challenges in the quest to End Poverty.
These discussions, covering dozens of sectors in every region of the world, offer many innovative solutions that affect millions – if not billions – of people globally. Looking back, all the small gains from many initiatives from 1990 to 2013 led to a reduction of global extreme poverty of more than one billion people. And just like those initiatives came together to form a bigger picture, we are calling on YOU to help us create a bigger picture of our own throughout the Annual Meetings , and leading up to End Poverty Day on October 17. Every person deserves a fair chance in life and your photo can make a difference by raising awareness on ending poverty. — blog.wb.org/blogs
