    About the World Bank Institute

    The World Bank Group is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. The World Bank Institute (WBI) is one of the Bank’s main instruments for developing individual, organizational, and institutional capacity through the exchange of knowledge among those countries.

    WBI designs and delivers learning programs that create opportunities for development stakeholders to acquire, share, and apply global and local knowledge and experiences.

    Working with Development Stakeholders

    WBI works with policymakers, civil servants, technical experts, business and community leaders, parliamentarians, civil society stakeholders, as well as other learning institutions such as universities and local training institutes to foster the analytical, technical, and networking skills that support effective socioeconomic programs and public policy formulation. In fiscal 2008, WBI reached some 39,500 participants, 50 percent of whom were government officials, 30 percent were from Sub-Saharan Africa, and 34 percent were women.
