One of the key constraints to building democratic market systems in the developing world is the shortage of knowledge on effective strategies for reform. Civil society leaders depend on their ability to learn from international experiences in order to accelerate reform processes and make democracy work. Over the course of 30 years of democracy assistance, CIPE and its private sector partners have accumulated experience that can be shared to strengthen the effectiveness of programs today. Democracy advocates and market reformers around the world look to CIPE and its network for guidance in areas such as policy advocacy, civil society strengthening, and the political economy of reform.
The Knowledge Management program is CIPE’s primary mechanism for integrating lessons learned into regional programs and making its institutional knowledge accessible to overseas partners. The unit serves the partner network and other reform leaders by sharing strategies, best practices, and lessons learned. By capturing, applying, and exchanging program lessons, Knowledge Management helps amplify CIPE’s impact and strengthens CIPE’s thought leadership on core areas of work.
Key resources, case studies and guidebooks developed by Knowledge Management include:
• Guide to Governance Reform
• Strategies for Policy Reform volume 1, volume 2, volume 3
• Creating the Environment for Entrepreneurial Success
