The World Bank Group, in partnership with CIVICUS, the Government of Finland and InterAction will host a conference on citizen engagement on March 18, 2013 to highlight the value of engaging with citizens for effective development.

The Citizen Voices conference will focus on citizen engagement and feedback systems that strengthen the quality of policy making and service delivery, where the impact on the poor is most direct. The conference aims to explore how citizen engagement is essential for effective development, move from knowledge to action, and establish concrete partnerships for scaling up at global and national levels.

The conference will be opened by Dr. Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank Group, and feature Jay Naidoo, Chair of the Board of Directors and Chair of the Partnership Council of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), and World Bank Group Managing Director, Caroline Anstey.

The event will bring together technology innovators, development specialists, government officials, academics, civil society representatives, World Bank staff and the private sector where experience with client feedback systems is the deepest. Sessions will include discussions exploring how innovative uses of technology can be transformational, how governments can be more responsive, and how we ensure citizen feedback is robust.

The conference will close by generating ideas for how we proceed as a collective in advancing the citizen engagement agenda.
