As part of the PREM program on Achieving Shared Growth, and in close collaboration with several donors who are also heavily engaged in this area, a Multi-Donor Diagnostic Facility on Shared Growth (DFSG) was launched in early 2007. The donors contributing to the DFSG are France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
The overall objective of the program is to improve the quality and policy relevance of shared growth diagnostics to accelerate poverty reduction. The knowledge management program aims to facilitate the use of existing and emerging tools to improve shared growth analysis by Bank country teams, donors, and governments.
To encourage innovative country studies that further our understanding of how poor people can improve their well-being by contributing to and benefiting from the growth process, DFSG provides supplemental funding to World Bank teams to conduct such studies.
