Join World Bank Group President David Malpass, ahead of the Spring Meetings, at the London School of Economics and Political Science as he discusses what is needed to build a green, inclusive, and resilient recovery from the pandemic. The crisis has worsened inequality and disproportionately impacted the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children.

In his conversation with Minouche Shafik, Director of LSE, President Malpass will share his thoughts on accelerating a recovery that tackles growing inequalities and improves livelihoods.
