Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation was represented at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund Annual Meetings in DC.
This year’s events took place in Washington, D.C. from October 14-20, 2019.
Katarina Novakova, Director of Relations at Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation attended the meetings on behalf of the organization.
The World Bank Group is one of the world’s largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries. Its five institutions share a commitment to reducing poverty, increasing shared prosperity, and promoting sustainable development.
Ms. Novakova said: “Participants were discussing the solutions that can trigger inclusive economic growth, why debt transparency is important, what the workable solutions are to tackle the biodiversity crisis, and what are the actions needed to address the education challenge, especially the number of children who can’t read by the age of ten.”
The program of events showcased unique stories that could help inspire others, such as innovations in creating financial and market opportunities for women entrepreneurs, and how investment and innovation in infrastructure have helped deliver sustainable growth and social development for communities and countries.
To boost action and accelerate progress towards tackling development challenges and reducing extreme poverty, delegates from the member countries, observer organizations, civil society, private sector, and media convened at the 2019 Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
