Donors Funding Research
The Knowledge for Change Program pools intellectual and financial resources, and helps generate new knowledge in support of the Bank’s mission. It encourages and improves dialogue with partner agencies, developing country clients, and other interested parties. The fundamental objective of the program is to promote high quality, cutting edge research (including data collection in the direct context of research) that creates knowledge to support policies for poverty reduction and sustainable development. A subsidiary objective is to assist the development of research capacity in client countries. Learn more.
