Knowledge for Change Program

Thematic Priorities

KCP IV’s priority areas focus on the World Bank’s IDA19 special themes and topics, namely, jobs and economic transformation; fragility, conflict, and violence; climate change; gender and development; and governance and institutions, as well as cross-cutting issues in debt and financial fragility, human capital, technology, and disability. Such a thematic alignment with IDA19 will enable KCP to provide research and analytical inputs to the World Bank’s core lending operations and policy advice. As needed, new themes and priority areas may be identified and added.
