The Parliamentary Network's mission is to provide a platform for parliamentarians to participate in discussion concerning global development and to give parliamentarians a greater say in development matters.
The Network arranges annual conferences, meetings between parliamentarians in developing countries and donor countries, and various research and education projects.
The Network includes parliamentarians from the World Bank's member states. The Board of Directors is composed of 12 parliamentarians from around the world. The Speaker's Council appoints the Finnish delegation to the Parliamentary Network.
