With 189 member countries, staff from more than 170 countries, and offices in over 130 locations, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership: five institutions working for sustainable solutions that reduce poverty and build shared prosperity in developing countries. The organization’s websites hold a wealth of research resources and data banks that may be useful to those interested in issues related to poverty measurement, sustainability, delivery of social services, trade, migration, and a whole range of other topics related to development.
This is a hands on training workshop that gives a comprehensive overview hoping to provide useful points of departure for users looking for development information. You will also get a chance to practice using World Bank data under guidance during the session to get started to use this powerful resource for your research projects.
This training will be in person. It is free and open to Rice faculty, staff, students, and the general public.
