The World Bank / Banco mundial

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. We are not a bank in the ordinary sense but a unique partnership to reduce poverty and support development.


Education is fundamental to development and growth. From encouraging higher enrollment, especially for girls and other disadvantaged children, to promoting learning for all, the World Bank Group plays a significant role in education globally.

Better World Flux

Better World Flux was created as an entry for the World Bank Apps for Development competition. The site aims to raise awareness for the UN Millennium Development Goals by letting users visualize and share stories that are hidden in the World Bank Open Data. In essence the Flux is a glorified histogram. It displays a snapshot of the world state for a given year; green being good and red being bad. Within each colour of the Flux are a number of countries and the width of the Flux corresponds to the total number of people living in those countries. The width of the Flux is calculated on a log scale so that variations are more visible. Countries were assigned a colour based on a composite score calculated as the geometric mean of the user-selected indicators for any given year.

Proyectos y operaciones

Los proyectos y operaciones del Banco Mundial están diseñados para respaldar las estrategias de reducción de la pobreza de los países de ingreso mediano y bajo. Estos formulan estrategias en torno a una serie de reformas y proyectos de inversión que buscan mejorar las condiciones de vida de las personas en áreas tan diversas como educación universal, caminos transitables, calidad de la atención de salud, buen gobierno y crecimiento económico inclusivo. Paralelamente, el Banco se esfuerza por ajustar la asistencia que brinda con las prioridades de los países y armonizar su programa de apoyo con otros organismos para incrementar la eficacia de la ayuda.
