World Development Indicators (WDI)
WDI is the primary World Bank database for development data from officially recognized international sources. Global Development Finance (GDF) provides external debt and financial flows statistics for countries that report public and publicly guaranteed debt under the World Bank's Debtor Reporting System (DRS).
Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA)
The World Bank CPIA rates countries against a set of 16 criteria grouped in four clusters: (a) economic management; (b) structural policies; (c) policies for social inclusion and equity; and (d) public sector management and institutions.
The World Bank views good governance and anti-corruption as central to its poverty alleviation mission. Evidence suggests that countries with good governance and low corruption are more successful in capacity development. The Governance group supports the collection, rigorous analysis, careful interpretation, and transparent dissemination of data for empirical research, capacity-building, and learning programs. Some datasets listed in this site are accessible for interactive interface with the web user as an 'e-learning' tool.
Knowledge Assessment Methodology
WBI's Knowledge for Development (K4D) program helps developing countries make more effective use of knowledge for their economic and social development.The K4D Program advises client countries on economic and institutional regime, education, innovation, and Information and Communication Technologies. The K4D program uses a knowledge assessment methodology (KAM) to benchmark how an economy compares with its neighbors, competitors, or others it wishes to emulate.
