Online Collaborative Space

The OBA/RBF CoP hosts an online collaborative space for sharing, peer learning and collaboration with RBF practitioners and interested professionals. The community fosters open discussion and knowledge exchange serving as the place for accessing expertise on RBF projects, creating meaningful exchange among community members, and soliciting feedback from peers who work with RBF instruments. Featured online activities include e-discussions, webinars and blogs. Content not only pertains to different RBF instruments, but also to their application to development sectors including energy, water and sanitation, solid waste management, education, health, and education. Becoming a member gives you access to these RBF resources, such as relevant publications and news, as well as opportunities to network with members.

In addition to the online collaborative space, the OBA/RBF CoP provides a variety of face-to-face networking opportunities, such as workshops, trainings, Brown-Bag-Lunches. As a part of its mandate, OBA/RBF CoP also fosters partnerships with other relevant communities within the World Bank, as well as external organizations which are involved in RBF.
