Since 1960, the World Bank’s IDA fund has been quietly unlocking a series of global win-win benefits. By investing in low-income countries we're investing in our food and energy security, boosting resilience against borderless dangers like COVID and the climate crisis, and laying new foundations for global economic stability. This film captures how.

Win 1

Boosting local healthcare, helping prevent pandemics 

Beyond the devastating human impact of Covid 19, there was a significant financial cost. Global GDP fell by 3.5 per cent in 2020. The IDA has been investing in helping developing countries prepare for healthcare emergencies. By improving infrastructure and funding local outbreak management, we can respond faster to future global pandemics.  

Win 2

Support farmers, keep food affordable 

Seven in ten nations buy more food than they export. Rising temperatures, unstable weather and reduced soil fertility are lowering crop yields, sending food prices soaring. Funding tools and training to help farmers diversify crops and adopt new methods could build more resilient supply chains and keep affordable food on our tables.  

Win 3

Invest in women, strengthen economies 

Providing skills and training for women has huge economic benefits. Despite making up half the world’s working-age population, women earn just 77 cents for every $1 paid to men. Advancing their equality could add $12 trillion to the global economy in 10 years.
