Data and Research

The Bank undertakes a broad range of analytic and advisory activities to support its poverty reduction mission through the Development Economics Vice Presidency (DEC) and the Poverty Reduction and Economic Management (PREM) Network. The research informs the Bank's work on broad issues such as the environment, poverty, gender, trade, debt reduction, and globalization. DEC is responsible for collecting, studying, and sharing information internally and externally relating to development, which it does through the Research group, the Data group, and the Development Prospects group.
