Re: World Bank examples? #case-studies


Hi Ninez

I wrote this for the Bank a few years ago: Technical assessment of open data
platforms for national statistical organisations

The objective was to build out open data publication technical capacity, and
provide a standards benchmark. There's also the Open Data Readiness
Assessment initiative

The results from open data initiatives have been mixed (my own project
experiences ranging from the amazing, to the frustratingly hostile), but it
helps to remember where even the Bank was a decade ago. Data management has
gone from randomly-structured spreadsheets released at random intervals to
random schemas and metadata definitions, to a global movement for structure,
accessibility and consistency in a relatively short period of time, all
without it being in the least bit of a sexy subject.

Hello Ninez,

Thank you for this question. I recommend looking at our report on World
Bank's Knowledge Flow published in 2019 -

It has both the examples of what has operationally worked well and where we
recommended the World Bank to fine-tune its knowledge flow. A note that some
institutional changes has happened in the World Bank since the release of
this report, but I think it provide a good overview.

You may also look into our older report on Knowledge-Based Country Programs
p_eval.pdf It is a but older but still shares some examples.

Hope this helps.

Was wondering if I could reach out to the experts in this community. Would
you know of specific examples of World Bank KM initiatives that have
directly and positively benefitted their Member States (and not just the
bank itself)? If there are links to them that would be helpful.

I'd be so grateful.

Many thanks,
