Third High-Level Meeting on Country-led Knowledge Sharing (HLM3)
March 30-31, 2016World Bank Headquarters (Washington, DC)


On March 30-31, the World Bank will be hosting the third High-Level Meeting (HLM3) on Country-Led Knowledge Hubs to showcase the progress made by country institutions in using knowledge for effective service delivery and sharing these solutions with domestic and international peers.

HLM3 builds on the momentum from two previous meetings (2012 in Bali and 2014 in Seoul) and will involve many stakeholders ranging from senior representatives from country institutions, senior civil servants including political leaders, multilateral and bilateral partners, country-led academia, civil society, media and WBG management and staff.   

Participants will meet to:

  • Take stock of knowledge sharing experiences and learn how building institutional and operational capacities for knowledge sharing has an impact on delivery of public services;
  • Showcase the success and potential of knowledge sharing in thematic areas that are critical to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and
  • Deepen the political momentum around countries’ institutional and operational efforts, and embed knowledge sharing in the SDG implementation by bringing together the members of the Global Partnership on Country-Led Knowledge Sharing.

The meeting is being organized by the Organizational Knowledge Sharing (OKS) program, which is managed out of the Leadership, Learning, and Innovation (LLI) VPU, with support and input from the Global Practices and is being generously supported by the Government of Korea.
