Online Media Briefing Center

The Online Media Briefing Center (OMBC) is a password-protected site for working journalists only. Most information in the OMBC is released to the public soon after it is provided to the media. Non-journalists who would like to be informed when new World Bank information is released are invited to subscribe to one or more of our free e-mail newsletters.

Are You an Accredited Journalist?

Accredited journalists only are invited to complete our brief registration form to tell us about your interests and the media outlets where your work appears. The site offers advanced access to World Bank reports. Because the OMBC is intended for journalists only, applications from non-journalists will be rejected.

We kindly ask all past users to re-register as new users through the "SIGN UP" button below. The new system will not recognize your old account information.
