With 189 member countries, staff from more than 170 countries, and offices in over 130 locations, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership: five institutions working for sustainable solutions that reduce poverty and build shared prosperity in developing countries.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a world free of poverty on a livable planet.

Our Mission

Our mission is to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity on a livable planet. This is threatened by multiple, intertwined crises. Time is of the essence. We need to write a new playbook to drive impactful development that is:

  • Inclusive of everyone, including women and young people;
  • Resilient to shocks, including against climate and biodiversity crises, pandemics and fragility;
  • Sustainable, through growth and job creation, human development, fiscal and debt management, food security and access to clean air, water, and affordable energy.


To achieve this, we will work with all clients as one World Bank Group, in close partnership with other multilateral institutions, the private sector, and civil society.
