By setting this cookie, infoDev will remember you the next time you visit and won't have to bother you by asking questions you have already answered (like address information).

Notification of Changes
Access to Information
infoDev is part of the World Bank Group, and therefore the World Bank's policy on Access to Information applies.
The World Bank policy on Access to Information sets forth a groundbreaking change in how the World Bank makes information available to the public. Now the public can get more information than ever before-information about projects under preparation, projects under implementation, analytic and advisory activities, and Board proceedings.
Underlying the new policy is the principle that the World Bank will disclose any information in its possession that is not on a list of exceptions. More information can be found here.
