The Annual World Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE)
brings together the world's finest development thinkers to present
their perspectives and ideas. In recent years, a parallel, second
conference has been held in Europe with the same goal of expanding the
flow of ideas between thinkers, practitioners, and policymakers in the
field of international development.
ABCDE Europe 2003 presents selected papers from the fourth annual
ABCDE Europe meetings, held June 24-26, 2002, in Oslo, Norway. Hosted
by the World Bank and the Chr. Michelsen Institute, more than 350
eminent scholars and practitioners from 50 countries met to deliberate
on the theme 'Towards Pro-Poor Policies'. The papers from
sessions on aid, institutions, and globalization provide both a general
overview of links between poverty, inequality, and growth, and address
specific topics such as the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative
for debt reduction. All consider the role of policies and institutions
in development and poverty reduction.
