ECA knowledge briefs disseminate knowledge, good practices, and lessons learned that are generated and captured from both operational and analytical work in the ECA Region to interested Bank staff, clients and partners. Briefs are published in English in the form of a 4-page color leaflet that highlights the key messages and synthesized content of a piece of work for a quick and easy access by users to our knowledge base. They support client engagement and business development by sharing what the Bank does (or can do) for and how the Bank adds value to our clients.
