Complex Crises and the World Bank Evolution Roadmap

13/04/2023, Washington

On April 13th, a roundtable was co-hosted in Washington D.C. by Nexus25, the Center for Climate & Security, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the Center for American Progress. The event occurred on the sidelines of the 2023 World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings. The closed-door conversation convened senior representatives from governments, international organizations, civil society, and think tanks to discuss global and multilateral responses to complex crises of insecurity, climate change, and migration.

In reflecting on how to best address these challenges, the conversation focused on the role played by international organizations in developing new strategies and tools to respond to multiple crises, and how food security should be recognized a central issue on future critical debates on these topics. In this perspective, the World Bank Evolution Roadmap serves as a valid element to assess the overlapping challenges of climate change, population movements, and conflict that create powerful stress multipliers, feeding into discontent, further migratory pressure, and sometimes instability.
