The Japan-World Bank Partnership Program

The objective of this program is to support activities that build relationships between Japanese stakeholders and the World Bank on key development issues, stimulate public interest in Japan for international development issues, and strengthen aid coordination initiatives. Some of the activities supported by this program are:

Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC) - TDLC was established in 2004 as a state-of-the-art learning center, serving as a platform for exchange of knowledge and experience on development through partnerships with public and private institutions in Japan and the region, and to support operations of the Asia Pacific affiliates of the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN). Phase 2 of the project, which is no longer funded through the Partnership program, started in 2010 and will be implemented through March 2015. For more information go to the Tokyo Development Learning Center website.

Light Manufacturing in Africa - This study draws on innovative analytical research to show that Sub-Saharan Africa could become competitive in light manufacturing and create millions of productive jobs in the process. Comparisons are made with Asian countries to benchmark Africa's potential. A focused and pragmatic policy agenda is proposed for Ethiopia, with additional insights for Tanzania and Zambia.
