Recently, Li Dongxiang, Lead Regional Cooperation and Integration (RCI) Specialist, Economic Research and Regional Cooperation Department, at ADB, wrote a very interesting blog post entitled "Why operations knowledge matters for MDBs – and how to capture, reuse it". He argues that “operations knowledge forms the base and backbone of the knowledge resources of MDBs” (as, indeed, of international development organizations generally). Further, he points out that this “knowledge—if captured, shared and reused—can greatly improve the design and implementation” of projects. The post is worth reading in full, and it can be found at::
