Crowd-sourcing World Bank policy

This from On my Way
World leaders will be gathering next month to discuss the replenishment of the International Development Association (IDA) fund, the World Bank's fund for the poorest countries that helps fight poverty in Africa. We want you to join this conversation by submitting your video today! In a 2-minute video, answer the following question: If you were asked to advise the Bank on what to fund in your village, your town, your province, your state or your country to reduce poverty, what would you recommend and why?
Videos must be submitted by Wednesday, September 29th (11:59pm EST).
For all inquiries, email
Part of me is sceptical that the videos will be used in any way (or even looked at) by the people in charge but in the fight to give the beneficiaries of aid a voice and to overcome the limitations imposed by gatekeepers the idea certainly has potential.
