World Development Report (WDR)

For over thirty years, the annual World Development Report has provided a insight about trends and issues concerning development economics and served as one of the principal vehicles for encapsulating the World Bank's knowledge of and policy recommendations on key global development trends.

From agriculture and the environment to economic growth and international trade and security, the WDR has tracked theoretical and empirical findings as well as policies in the field of international development. The robust search engine of the Complete World Development Report Online offers full-text access to all World Development Reports since 1978 published by the World Bank as well as the background papers upon which the most recent reports were drawn. All forthcoming reports will be added to the database as they are published.
