Prioritizing Human Capital in the World Bank Operational Response to Covid-19 : The First 100 Days (English)

The World Bank has put people at the center of the historic response to COVID-19. In the first 100 days of the COVID-19 operational response the World Bank has leveraged over 16 billion US Dollars in funding for human capital priorities. These resources are supporting more than 100 governments to save lives, safeguard the poor and vulnerable, protect jobs, and rebuild better systems for the future. This joint HD – OPCS note reviews the unprecedented speed, scale and focus of the operational response, highlighting projects from a range of sectors, with a special section on the use of development policy operations. It also calls for support to countries to build back with stronger more resilient systems for people and economies, including to address equity and coverage gaps which have been starkly revealed by the crisis.
