World Bank Unveils Governance Tools

The World Bank has launched a platform to help promote good governance.

The Governance and Anti-Corruption Portal “promises to be a repository of knowledge on governance,” according to Sina Odugbemi, head of the bank’s communication for governance and accountability program.

The portal will contain documents, operational lessons, frameworks and training modules on governance.

The bank has also launched a blog, “Governance for Development.”

The new blog aims “to provide a forum among World Bank Group staff engaged in the GAC-mainstreaming (governance and anti-corruption) endeavor and the wider development community for sharing, reflection and discussion as to the implications of GAC mainstreaming for development work,” according to Brian Levy, editor of the blog.
