The World Bank is a financial institution that works through the United Nations to supply aid to countries across the globe. It consists of five different institutions that operate cooperatively. The goals of the World Bank are to end extreme poverty within a generation and to boost shared prosperity. They work to do this by granting loans, training, as well as research aid to both private and public sectors of a country.
As an international institution, the World Bank strives to promote cooperation to end poverty and boost prosperity for the globes poorest people. Additionally, it is committed to building resilience against the shocks and threats our world faces that can roll back decades of progress. The World Bank hopes to see projects proposed that work to challenge global injustices and solve issues of human displacement. Specifically, the World Bank hopes to see resolutions that provide safeguard for our globes most vulnerable populations through cooperation and diplomacy. We hope that nations will work together to combat climate change, encourage access to energy, challenge conflict and violence, and promote financial inclusion to reduce poverty and boost prosperity. Additionally, resolutions that address issues of human injustices such as international slave trades, global violence against women, international trafficking of peoples, and issues of displacement will be highly considered for funding from the World Bank.
