ADB's long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020, argues that knowledge solutions must be enriched through internal learning from operational practice and external learning from long-term knowledge partnerships. The Guidelines for Knowledge Partnerships offer a framework for strengthening such partnerships. They specify the essentials of designing for performance, articulate building blocks, and underscore success factors and special considerations. The guidelines are offered as a resource document and reference to ADB staff members in general. They may also help other organizations design and manage their knowledge partnerships better.
