Online Communities

An Online Community is an informal network of practitioners coordinated by our program, with the goal of continuous learning on a specific topic through an exchange of resources, experiences, and insights that allows learning to continue after a particular event.

 

Communities of Practice

Electronic networking tools will be used to draw together experts in areas central to the development of poverty reduction strategies. These “communities” will enable on-the-job learning through the exchange of best practices and problem solving among professional peers. Furthermore, PRSP Teams will be able to tap into these communities to access the best available global knowledge. These electronic tools will also be used to support other PGP programs.

Welcome to the Economic Literacy Community (ELC). This is an online community of practice comprising of an informal group of researchers, practitioners and professionals with real practical needs and a keen interest to learn from each other, solving problems together. In this sense, ELC is a broad-based community of individuals, mainly coming from Civil Society Organizations, with an interest in learning how their colleagues across the globe are grappling with the challenges of economic literacy in macroeconomics.

Welcome to the Joint-Donor Community(JDC). This is an online community of practice comprising of an informal group of researchers, practitioners and professionals from donor agencies that share a keen interest to learn from each other. The JDC is an open community and operates in a virtual fashion through a website and an electronic discussion. The JDC has its origins in the innovative Joint-donor training in Poverty Reduction Strategies that started in 2002 and pooled twelve donor agencies together in collaboration with the World Bank Institute's Poverty and Growth Program (PGP). The JDC builds on that training program and the participant in its courses.
