worldbank #Resilience and #recovery in action. Members of this community in #Yogyakarta, #Indonesia banded together to #rebuild their homes after the devastating volcanic eruption of Mount #Merapi and subsequent #earthquake. About 360,000 homes were destroyed, but these people picked up and started over. Today their community is one of the world’s largest and most successful examples of post-disaster housing #reconstruction. We’re proud to have supported the community-driven development program, “Rekompak,” that empowered them to plan and rebuild 280,000 houses in less than two years. #Asia #EastAsia #DRM #postdisasterreconstruction #Rekompak #endpoverty 1d

worldbank These are beneficiaries of a #land husbandry, #water harvesting and hillside #irrigation (#LWH) project in Rambura, #Rwanda. About 90% of Rwanda's arable land is found on hillsides like this. #Agriculture employs 80% of Rwanda's population & contributes 33% of GDP. Reducing soil #erosion, improving #soil health & boosting agricultural #productivity are all key priorities. Photo: Natalia Cieslik/World Bank #Africa #SSA #endpoverty #food4all 1w

worldbank Children in the #Arabworld should have equal opportunities for healthy development early on, regardless of circumstances. Did you know 1/5 of #children in the Arab world are stunted from #malnutrition, putting millions at risk of impaired learning and limited opportunities.

worldbank On Thursday, World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim met with leaders in #Peru to see how the government is making it possible for more children to go to school, particularly in the country’s poorest areas. In this photo, President Kim, the President of Peru, Ollanta Humala, and the Minister of Education, Jaime Saavedra, join students at Colegio de Alto Rendimiento, one of the country’s high-performance schools, in Chontabamba. Delivering quality #education remains a challenge, but we are supporting Peru and other countries in their efforts to improve learning outcomes.

worldbank Everyone has their role to play in ending #poverty. Even artists, who have a huge opportunity to use their star power and large fan bases to raise awareness of issues they care passionately about. The World Bank is proud to launch a new web series—#Music4Dev—to welcome music artists from all over the globe who are involved in #development to share their music and talk about the issues near and dear to them. Kicking off the series is Nigerian superstar @iambangalee. Building on the momentum of last year's pan-African #agriculture campaign, D'Banj stopped by World Bank HQ to ensure that the root causes of extreme poverty, like agriculture insecurity and gender inequality, are addressed by global leaders. He also dedicated his new song "ExtraOrdinary" to all the strong and inspiring #women of the world. Check out his amazing performance and lively interview!

worldbank The #earthquake in #Nepal has taken a terrible human toll and caused widespread destruction. We have been in close contact with the Nepalese government and, at its request, our team on the ground is helping assess damage and reconstruction needs in urban areas. This is just a first step. We stand ready to do more and, working with Nepalese authorities, will do more.

worldbank Innovative new ideas are one of the best ways to make the most of a challenging #climate. Take a look at Peter Chege and his #hydroponics business, where he’s managed to adapt a system of growing plants without soil for use in #Kenya. Not only does his design reduce #water usage by 80%, but he’s able to grow multiple plants in a small space. By adopting this system people are able to #farm more for less. We can #endpoverty! #food #farming #agriculture #innovation #Africa 1mon

People with disabilities can benefit greatly from #education and make solid contributions to society. Investment in human capital helps them find good #jobs, one of the most important factors in promoting social #inclusion and economic #development.
