The Social Development Department (SDV) and Agriculture and Rural Development Department (ARD) are organizing this joint workshop on the potential of rural institutions to increase access of the rural poor to public and private services. This event will bring together World Bank, CGIAR centers, academics and practitioners in the field of mobilizing rural institutions for sustainable livelihoods and equitable development. The purpose will be to discuss ongoing support to rural institutions, present the latest research and initiatives in the field, identify gaps in the existing research agenda and propose ways to strengthen linkages between research on rural institutions and development operations.
