The World Bank Group’s mission is to fight poverty and improve the living standards of people in the developing world. It is a development bank which provides loans, policy advice, technical assistance and knowledge sharing services to low and middle income countries to reduce poverty. The Indigenous Knowledge Programme manages a website which is a knowledge source designed to assist policy makers, programme managers, and practitioners in development approaches that rely on traditional knowledge systems to help achieve the millennium development goals. The team has developed a number of manuals, which can be accessed through the website, and manages the Bank's portfolio of indigenous knowledge projects and programmes
