Maddalena Honorati, Economist, World Bank.

In 2013, the World Bank Group launched a new model for engaging its client countries. Underpinned by two instruments – the systematic country diagnostic (SCD) and the country partnership framework (CPF), the new model is designed to promote greater country ownership and better align the World Bank Group’s work with client country development priorities. In doing so, the new model positions the World Bank Group and countries to identify the most critical constraints to, and opportunities for achieving the twin goals of reducing poverty and building shared prosperity.

GDP and Wealth are complementary indicators that provide a fuller picture of economic well-being. A country’s comprehensive wealth includes all produced capital such as factories and roads; natural capital like forests and water; human capital, which leads to earnings; and net foreign assets. Only by having a clear understanding of our world’s wealth—including all forms of capital—can we plan for a more sustainable future. The World Bank is working with countries to go beyond GDP and build a more accurate picture of their wealth. This helps governments to plan for more sustainable economic growth.

I invite you to pause just for a second and take a moment to think about the last time you changed your mind about something. Specifically, I'd like for you to identify something that was either very important to you or your worldview, or something that you had taken for granted, that today you have either the complete opposite or at least a very different perspective on. Got it? Now ask yourself, what was it that made you change your mind? And, again specifically, what evidence did you unearth, or were presented with, that made the case for changing your mind? For most of us, a profound change of mind doesn't happen very often, but when it does, the effects of such a change alter lives, communities, and entire belief systems. As a final step in this exercise, I'd like for you to t...
