The Fact Sheets provide background information on when and why a specific tool is relevant for a Financial Cooperation project. They describe what project partners and suppliers need to know regarding their respective usefulness for the project’s objectives, implementation options as well as interoperability and legal requirements. They also list Use Cases and links to further sources.
Here you will soon find KfW’s RMMV Guidebook on how to manage, monitor and verify Financial Cooperation projects remotely. This RMMV Guidebook will assist KfW’s employees, project partners and suppliers in jointly implementing Financial Cooperation Projects even in situations with limited access to project sites, projects with many locations as well as projects covering extended areas.
For several years, artificial intelligence (AI) has been regarded as both a blessing and a curse. AI is often used as a collective term to describe increasing automation in many sectors of the economy and management. There is major potential to use AI in developing countries and emerging economies. In traffic planning and management, healthcare, and disaster prevention and management in particular, it can be used to automatically structure and analyse large amounts of data, use them to generate forecasts and quickly — even in real time — respond to changes.
The current edition of Development in Brief explains how AI works and talks about how developing countries and emerging economies can benefit from the technology.
