who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Inputs welcome As before, when we sparked a swarm of e-mails from World Bank staff, journalists, activists, etc, your inputs are welcome. Just e-mail contact@worldbankpresident.org. Two of my Eurodad colleagues are in DC, and many of our network members also. So watch this space for their insights on a proposed civil society statement, what was said to Wolfowitz at a reception this evening in DC, and what goes on at a press conference organised tomorrow (13th April), with Danny Glover providing star power. The latter is at at the Hotel Lombardy, 2019 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

The press conference aims to raise concerns about economic policy conditionality and climate change, but these issues as others may be overtaken by the Wolfowitz scandal. For more on the deeper issues, see the IFIwatchnet site which pools documents, meeting dates etc from NGOs across the world.
