Consolidating knowledge and capacities
Aimed at supporting dialogue, mutual technical assistance, cooperation and exchange of knowledge through coordination with international and regional actors, the development of learning communities, technical notes, and the consolidation of efforts to disseminate lessons learned and innovative practices.
How is it being implemented?
Regional dialogue: the Bank coordinates its support with other international assistance institutions in an ordered and strategic manner through different networks, groups and agreements with a view towards enhancing the quality of actions and contributing to an international dialogue against corruption. Coordination initiatives with other international bodies include: the Memorandum of Understanding between the IDB and the OAS (2007), the Memorandum of Understanding between the IDB and the Government of Norway (2007), the Memorandum of Understanding between the IDB and the World Economic Forum (2007) and the International Financial Institutions Anti-Corruption Task Force (2006).
Generation, systematization and dissemination of knowledge: support is given to documenting the results of programs and initiatives in this area by tracking projects and identifying lessons learned and promising practices. In addition, support is given to assess the impact of programs undertaken, with a view to ensuring that subsequent actions are grounded in sufficient empirical evidence and that knowledge accumulates and is spread through instruments for fighting corruption. Finally, this area promotes mechanisms to enhance dissemination of the Bank’s activities in this area and facilitate the exchange of experiences, such as workshops, seminars and conferences (See examples).
What are the support tools?
KCP (Knowledge and Capacity Building products): non-reimbursable cooperation and technical assistance programs to public institutions at the national and subnational level and civil society organizations. Through these programs, different activities are carried out in support of regional dialogue, promoting the results of the programs and developing and disseminating knowledge products, among others.
