In his speech, “Addressing Challenges to Growth, Security, and Stability,” President Malpass discussed how conflict, COVID-19, and climate change have created unprecedented challenges for developing countries, hurting the poorest and most vulnerable people and communities. He outlined how, moving forward, crisis recovery and longer-term development requires economic transformation, investment in human capital, and security and stability underpinned by support from the international community.

This speech was broadcast live from Poland, a country that has taken in over 2.3 million Ukrainian refugees fleeing war.
