    • Group 4 discussion result
    • Current conditions
      • Lacking independent think tank to exchange knowledge: not favorable environment and low capacity of CSOs (Vietnam)
      • WB has global learning network: (Papua New Guinea): The voice of educated people, not the poor and excluded/rural people.
      • Comparative countries constrained by the context and relevant indicators in knowledge sharing.
      • How to exchange knowledge and experiences=> including the broader public to get better knowledge ( Mongolia)
      • Development communication: changing behaviors/educations/health issues
    • Current situation
      • FIJI: WB is knowledge bank? New initiatives/ideas?=> Consultancy for local government.
      • CSOs have some skills that government can not provide? The need for sharing the knowledge between CSOs and WB=> trust and confidence to share the knowledge.
      • WB support and facilitate the platform for exchanges of ideas and knowledge within and among countries (Mongolia).
    • WB-CS engagement
      • What kind of engagement: consultative meeting?
      • How involving the CSOs in monitoring and evaluation of the projects?=> political process of keeping the information confidential=> more transparent process of WB projects.
      • Cambodia: what kind of knowledge? To be shared? Education quality problems? Many universities with low quality=> Social accountability for universities=> new knowledge has not been wide spread to the public/ investment in education system, right to access to information
      • WB offers small grants to CSOs=> more financial support for CSOs, sustainability and capacity of CSOs.
    • How to promote the knowledge sharing among CSOs and WB?
      • China: WB helps China since 1980s=> China learn from WB experiences=>pilot projects could provide good experiences and knowledge for policy making process.
      • WB worked with CSOs in China=> active participation of government in designing process with technical assistance from WB: youth development: HIV problems
      • CSOs can provide inputs to development reports of WB.
    • How to promote CSOs-WB exchanges of knowledge?
      • WB knowledge for developmentn Center: this job shares its information to the other partners=> make it available to the communities (the Phillippines)
      • In Mongolia, they set this system by themselves. CSO council for cooperation between CSOs and government, agreement between partners=> legal documents. Consider CSOs as equal partners, not as assistance to their programs.
      • Equal exchanges of knowledge: global concept imposed on local communities: people get confused. They need to understand the communities first (FIJI)
    • How to promote exchanges of knowledge?
      • CSOs input can help WB to adjust its policies.
      • Trust fund may be the way to ensure the partnership among different donors and partners: government controlled the trust fund=> no participation of CSOs.
    • Action plans
      • Substantial support (long-term financial and technical support and capacity building for CSOs: independent think tanks for policy analysis to provide evidence-based and relevant knowledge to policy makers and WB
      • More involvement of CSOs in the development process: monitoring and evaluation. Associations of independent monitoring/approval experts.
      • CSOs involved in the government procurement.
      • Information and knowledge sharing among CSOs in the region should be promoted. ( NGOs council is set up in Mongolia) with WB support.
      • The right to information as well as associations should be respected.
      • User-friendly information system of WB.
      • We need to clarify the information needs of CSOs from WB: how efficient the WB has been in each country?
      • Regular Consultation with CSOs on WB projects.
      • Contribute to five-year development plan as well as CGE meeting.
      • Knowledge sharing should focus on how to share not what!
      • Pro-active participation of CSOs
      • Thank you very much.
