Using Open Knowledge to Improve Development Outcomes

29 August 2019
Author / Speaker: 

Many developing countries face gaps between their current reality and preferred future. Access to development knowledge is critical to overcome the gap and improve the lives of their people.

In this session, Young Uck Kang explains how the solutions to many  development challenges are available to them on the internet. Using ADB’s Development Asia website as an example, he will demonstrate how to find practical, how-to development solutions that draw upon best practice cases from other countries or regions, technology applications, and policy studies. The session will also help participants to identify and connect with development experts from ADB and its partners to find localized solutions together.
