Jointly organised by the KDI Center for International Development & the OECD Development Centre, the Workshop on "Knowledge Sharing for Development: Taking Stock of Best Practices" will take place on 11 & 12 July 2011 in Paris.

Knowledge sharing is one of the nine pillars of the G-20 Seoul Multi Year Action Plan on Development... 50 years of practice in policy committees and peer reviews at the OECD shows that learning from the experience of others leads to effective policy making, saving time and costly experiments.

The workshop is an opportunity to take stock of best practices in knowledge sharing mechanisms on growth and sustainable development policies among policy-makers and practitioners in governments and international institutions.
