Road to IDA21

Road to IDA21

IDA's grants and low-interest loans help countries invest in their futures, improve lives, and create safer, more prosperous communities around the world.

IDA21 Replenishment

The 21st Replenishment of the International Development Association (IDA21) is critical in responding to global challenges and seizing opportunities for change. An ambitious IDA21 will serve as a lifeline for a world in crisis. Multiple crises have hindered global development, endangering lives and livelihoods and leaving many poor countries in debt. IDA has a proven track record of improving conditions in the poorest countries. IDA21 will catalyze investments in women and youth empowerment, energy access, climate goals, digitalization, job creation, and more to end poverty on a livable planet.

“We are pushing the limits of this important concessional resource and no amount of creative financial engineering will compensate for the fact that we just need more funding.”

Ajay Banga
World Bank Group President
