Wikipedia, the anti-cholesterol medication for knowledge management

This page in:

Trying to find a document through the World Bank search engine (either externally or internally)? Good luck! You might want to pencil in an afternoon...

Instead, you could turn to Wikipedia, which has an excellent search engine. Some innovative staff in the Latin America region of the World Bank have decided to start posting comprehensive articles on topics like energy and water. The benefits? Easy to find, even years after the item is published, not subject to excessive review processes before publication, and free to the public. It's like an anti-cholesterol medication for knowledge management at the World Bank.

For an example, check out this article on the electricity sector in Argentina.
