The strategy identified three pillars to support developing countries to achieve the two goals in a sustainable manner: delivering development solutions for clients; servicing clients as “one World Bank Group”; and leveraging the resources and expertise of partnerships. A new operating model was put in place in July 2014.

Integrating women better into business operations can increase companies’ profitability and contribute significantly to shared prosperity. However, women have less access to equal employment opportunities and capital to grow their businesses, experience high levels of sexual violence, are often barred from owning or inheriting land or other property, and have less income to invest for the future.
