Knowledge management has become one of the pillars of the Agency for Cooperation and Investment of Medellin and the Metropolitan Area in the attraction of cooperation and foreign investment into the city.
Knowledge transfer initiatives have been designed and implemented to position Medellín as a benchmark for best practices. They help us to capitalize the opportunities offered by the relationship with international partners.
Such is the case of the Medellín Lab program. It operates as a knowledge exchange platform and as a tool which generates cooperation alliances supported by the World Bank.
During its first edition in 2017, this project brought together several delegations from all around the world interested in learning about best practices in Medellín and other cities in terms of security, coexistence and peace building. This year, the Medellín Lab2018 will address issues of urban planning, mobility and project funding.
If you want to learn more about the experience of Medellín in knowledge exchange and learning initiatives, we invite you to see this interview in Spanish with Camilo Villa, World Bank’s knowledge management consultant.
