With this framework, citizens, governments, and donors can take action and accelerate progress toward the common objective of poverty reduction, as specified in the Millennium Development Goals. The World Bank creates its highly respected 'World Development Report' with input from individuals in government, business, academe, the media, nongovernmental organization, and civil society. By providing feedback on successive drafts and sharing concerns an opinions in an online, public forum as the report develops, these stakeholders help ensure that the report takes into account alternative points of view.
