The Spring Meetings are attended by approximately 2,800 delegates from member countries, 350 observer organization representatives and 800 members of the press.

Approximately 550 accredited civil society members also participate in the Meetings, according to the World Bank.

The meetings are comprised of events open to all attendees, ministerial-level invitation-only sessions, closed bilateral meetings, and events open only to the Press.

Delegates from Africa are expected to use the meetings to network, compare solutions, meet with creditors and potential investors as well as make strong demands for a more robust response against climate change.

Economists are expected to urge African leaders and the World to unvest more in human capital development, education and technology as well as oppose nationalism and promote globalization.
