Challenge 1

"So how can we leverage on knowledge management practices and tools to complement existing efforts by World Bank, and drive more significant outcomes to end extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity in a sustainable way?"

The World Bank is one of the world’s largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries. Its five institutions share a commitment to reduce poverty, increase shared prosperity, and promote sustainable development

The World Bank Open Knowledge Repository (OKR) is The World Bank’s official open access repository for its research outputs and knowledge products.

Unfortunately despite World Bank's efforts to provide funding and open access to knowledge, food insecurity is still increasing due to food price inflation and climate change. You can check out the link in comments section for more details.

Challenge 2 

"So how can we leverage on knowledge management practices and tools to complement existing efforts by UN SDG, and drive more significant outcomes to accelerate achievement of the 17 SDG targets?"

UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) are based on the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which was agreed upon at the UN Sustainable Development Summit 2015, with 17 SDGs at its core.

They provides an open access repository of publications, events, programmes and statements related to specific topics (countries, goals etc) https://sdgs.un.org/

In the most recent SDG Report 2023: Special Edition, Secretary-General of the United Nations shared in his foreward, "Halfway to the deadline for the 2030 Agenda, the SDG Progress Report; Special Edition shows we are leaving more than half the world behind. Progress on more than 50 per cent of targets of the SDGs is weak and insufficient; on 30 per cent, it has stalled or gone into reverse. These include key targets on poverty, hunger and climate"
