Synopsis: In 2013, the World Bank Group adopted two new goals to guide its work: ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. More specifically, the goals are to reduce extreme poverty in the world to less than 3 percent by 2030, and to foster income growth of the bottom 40 percent of the population in each country. While poverty reduction has been a mainstay of the World Bank’s mission for decades, the Bank has now set a specific goal and timetable, and for the first time, the Bank has explicitly included a goal linked to ensuring that growth is shared by all.

The discussion until now has centered primarily on articulating the new goals. This report, the latest in World Bank’s Policy Research Report series, goes beyond that and lays out their conceptual underpinnings, discusses their relative strengths and weaknesses by contrasting them with alternative indicators, and proposes empirical approaches and requirements to track progress towards the goals. The report makes clear that the challenges posed by the World Bank Group’s new stance extend not just to the pursuit of these goals but, indeed, to their very definition and empirical content. The report also argues that an improved data infrastructure, consisting of many elements including the collection of more and better survey data, is critical to ensure that progress towards these goals can be measured, and policies to help achieve them can be identified and prioritized.

Review: Scrupulous in exposing the fault lines in the World Bank s twin goals of absolute poverty elimination by 2030 and shared prosperity getting there. Honest and clearheaded about huge uncertainty attending the poverty elimination goal. Required reading for serious students of development, whether they like these particular goals or not. --NANCY BIRDSALL, President, Center for Global Development, Washington DC

This high quality report offers careful measurement and rigorous analysis of the current patterns of the twin goals. This is a first and crucial step to provide the right incentives to the World Bank and the development community to support action to achieve these goals. --STEFAN DERCON, Chief Economist, U.K. Department for International Development And Professor of Development Economics, University of Oxford

Goals are empty if progress towards meeting them cannot be measured in a consistent and credible way. The World Bank s two new goals of global poverty reduction and shared prosperity bring measurement issues to the fore. By getting into the nitty-gritty of what is required of the data especially household surveys and price and population data this report will inform both practitioners and policy makers, and help strengthen capacity for poverty analysis. --JOHN GIBSON, Professor of Economics, University of Waikato, New Zealand
