Welcome to free webinars that discuss cutting edge issues in development. Experts from the World Bank and partner institutions share the latest approaches on topics such as jobs, social entrepreneurship and green growth through online presentations.

Webinars can be highly interactive experiences in a “virtual meeting room” where participants are able to see and hear the presenter, and/or a slide show, in real time from their desktop. They can also interact and share their comments and questions through various tools like voting, pooling, and chat, assuring a full participation between the audience and the speakers. e-Institute webinars target mostly policy makers and practitioners, but everybody is welcome to attend. After the presentation, participants will also have the opportunity to interact with the speaker through a question and answer session.
