We are a team of archives, records, and information management professionals with responsibility for the records and information of the World Bank Group (WBG). We provide the public with access to the archival holdings of the World Bank along with engaging tools that enable the discovery of historical information. We also have fiduciary responsibilities for current records management and information governance within the WBG, made possible by policies, programs and services provided internally.
The Archives has various responsibilities for WBG records and information regardless of age and format. We have ownership of the World Bank Group Management of Records Policy, and we are the primary implementer of the Bank's Policy on Access to Information. We also provide advice, guidance, and support for other policies like data privacy, information security, and more.
