Sub-collections in this collection

  • Corporate Flagships

    The four corporate publications that are World Bank Group flagships are: the World Development Report (WDR); the Global Monitoring Report (GMR); Global Economic Prospects (GEP), and Doing Business (DB). All four go through a formal Bank-wide review and are discussed with the Board prior to their release. In terms of branding, the phrase “A World Bank Group Flagship Report” will be used exclusively on the cover of these publications. This label will signal that the institution assumes a higher level of responsibility for the positions held by these reports.
