Mr. Ladegaard is the Global Lead on Regulatory Policy and Management for the World Bank’s Governance Global Practice. He has more than 15 years of experience with different aspects of regulatory governance and reform. While at the OECD’s Regulatory Policy division, Peter led a number of benchmarking studies and country reviews of OECD Member Countries’ regulatory management systems. At the World Bank Group, since 2005, he has developed and directed the Better Regulation for Growth Program, which has adapted developed-country tools and experiences in regulatory reform to transition economies. Peter subsequently headed up the International Finance Cooperation (IFC)/World Bank Group’s Investment Climate Program in East and Southern Africa where he oversaw investment climate programs in 18 countries. Since July 2014, Peter has been working as the Global Lead for the newly established Regulatory Policy and Management business line at the World Bank. Establishment of the Regulatory Policy Team within the World Bank’s Governance Practice reflects the growing emphasis and recognition of the governance dimension of regulatory delivery and reform. In these various capacities, Peter has advised more than 40 governments on regulatory reform strategies and implementation.
Prior to joining the OECD and the World Bank, Peter worked in management consulting and for the Danish Ministry of Finance. He holds an MA in Political Science.
