  • These are the four broad, inter-connected components of Open Development. Open Development is about answering four basic questions:What and where are the opportunities to improve lives?Who is doing what about them?Is it working?Can I participate in the process?
  • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------The rise of MICs and the emergence of the G20 not only signals a shift in global power, but the success of these countries in creating growth and battling poverty. These countries now represent important sources of South-South knowledge and investment to complement what the North can do. Technology, and particularly the phenomenal penetration of mobile phones into the developing world has opened dramatic new ways of participating in political and economic decision making. Citizens are now able to track and give feedback on whether teachers are showing up in school, whether text books are being delivered. As the Arab Spring and numerous other citizen movements around the world show, citizens are now able to mobilize quickly and in a sustained manner to demand accountability. Global connectedness and the ability of more players to participate in the dialogue has resulted in the democratization of development – solutions, innovations, ‘wisdom’ are no longer the preserve of a northern elite, but can emerge from anywhere.Alongside there is a move for greater freedom of information and transparency of governments, multilateral institutions, and other publicly accountable bodies.The financial crisis has created fiscal and political pressures on traditional donor assistance, including the pressure and imperative to show concrete and tangible results. These trends together call for a new social compact on development between government and citizens.------------------------------------------------------------------------We are headed towards a global model of Open Development— encompassing aid , governance and knowledge, and it is a development model based on openness and transparency.We are moving towards an era in which all donor activity around the world will be geo-coded and overlaid with critical poverty indicators to spur both accountability and action. And while the World Bank will continue to lend money, the value of our data, tools, and connections may eventually eclipse the power of our balance sheet. And that is where we’re headed.
  • The Access to Information policy allows all information in the Bank’s possession to be available except those on a small list of exceptions. The policy is based on five principles:Maximizing access to informationClear list of exceptionsSafeguarding the deliberative processClear procedures for making information availableRight to appealMention prerogative to disclose restricted information and similarly to restrict access under exceptional circumstances.
