Social reporting at ABCDE 2011 in Paris

The 2011 Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE) took place in Paris from 30 May to 1 June 2011, co-hosted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the French Ministry of Economy, Finance, and Industry, and the World Bank.

ABCDE is the world’s best-known conference for the presentation and discussion of new knowledge on development economics. The conference aims at promoting the exchange of ideas among researchers, policymakers, and students interested in development issues. The theme of this year’s conference is Broadening Opportunities for Development and the specific sub-themes are inequity, job creation, youth, social protection and gender equity. 

Euforic Service, with GDNet, collaborated to the social reporting of the event, working with colleagues from the OECD and the World Bank to capture the conversations and shared them across the social web.
