Country Programs represent grants given to those countries where policy dialogue and commitment are already well advanced with operations, either on-going or planned. In these countries, a programmatic approach will be applied to cover a series of individual activities implemented over a three- to five-year period. PROGREEN grants for programs under this category will co-finance IBRD/IDA operations and key analytical activities and technical assistance aimed at filling gaps and identifying future issues and trends.
Knowledge Activities refer to grants given to those countries where engagement needs to be further developed and built through a combination of analytical products, technical assistance, policy dialogue and relationship building. This category of activities also includes countries where landscape engagement efforts have been initiated, but specific interventions are needed to scale up and achieve ambitious results. In these countries, the focus of PROGREEN work may be on analytics (e.g., sector reviews, policy assessments)
