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 2w

worldbank Today is World #Autism Awareness Day! More than one billion people – 15% of the world’s population – experience some form of #disability. 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. When education and labor markets are made inclusive and #accessible to persons with disabilities, their well-being improves and so do the prospects of their families. #WAAD #WAAD2015 #WorldAutismAwarenessDay #AutismDay2015 #LIUB 1mon
