The World Bank receives a lot of questions about how they support early childhood development. To address this they have launched a webinar series that will describe how they work with countries to improve opportunities for young children, as well as their initiatives to build capacity and share knowledge across countries and partners. Each webinar will include time for substantive discussion.

The first webinar was held on 10 February 2021. Amanda Devercelli (Global Lead for ECD) provided an overview on how the World Bank works at the global level and with countries to support early childhood.
