    The International Development Association (IDA) was established in 1960 as part of the World Bank's original lending arm, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), and remains one of the largest sources of concessional assistance for the world's poorest countries. IDA has supported activities in 108 countries with its annual commitments reaching $16 billion over the last three years and reaching 2.5 billion people, the majority of whom survive on less than $2 a day. As the World Bank prepares for the 17th replenishment of IDA, the Bretton Woods Committee and CSIS' Project on Prosperity and Development will host a discussion about how IDA can maximize its development impact going forward and impactful ways through which members such as the United States can invest in the Association.

    This event is being co-hosted with the Bretton Woods Committee.
