Knowledge and Capacity Building (KCP)
Knowledge and Capacity Building (KCP) activities are discrete and directly or indirectly increase the intellectual and institutional capital of regional member countries and private sector clients. These activities are aligned with institutional priorities and country focus. KCPs have been organized into four categories:
- advisory services including products derived from client-driven needs with a short-term scope;
- policy and capacity development including forward-looking, client-driven products that require a longer deployment time;
- outreach and dissemination including products that originate in the Bank and have a shorter-term scope that draw on knowledge that is readily available—or at least easily located;
- research and development including forward-looking products that originate within the Bank and are aimed at deepening the Bank’s knowledge in new subjects that would help countries.
