Tokyo Development Learning Center Annual Report Fiscal Year 2021

Founded in 2004, the Tokyo Development
Learning Center (TDLC) is a pivotal program within the World
Bank Group. Born out of the strong partnership between Japan
and the World Bank, TDLC serves as a leading knowledge hub
that offers urban development solutions and shares global
best practices to maximize their development impact.
Development impact of TDLC is accelerated through four core
activities that comprise TDLC’s program: (1) Technical Deep
Dives (TDDs) and events; (2) operational support; (3)
research and publications; and (4) the City Partnership
Program (CPP) and Community of Experts (CoE). These
activities are synergized with innovations, technology, and
demand-driven development solutions from Japan, and respond
to emerging countries’ urban development needs in an
efficient and timely manner. In FY21, TDLC adapted to
Coronavirus (COVID-19) and delivered its main programs
despite the impediments to operations posed by Coronavirus
(COVID‑19). This annual report provides a review of TDLC’s
work program over the past fiscal year (FY21) and summarizes
both ongoing and new initiatives undertaken by TDLC as part
of its effort to fulfill the mission of the Japan-World Bank
partnership. The report also highlights all the
partnerships, support systems, administrative and conference
management activities, and media coverage that bolstered
TDLC’s program in FY21.
