This will create knowledge flow from all directions  facilitating access to top quality content.  Similarly, CGs will address the challenge of harmonization of different data sources on development activity and will provide resources for distilling and sharing of best practice in specific development problems. CGs will promote further transparency and donor coordination and lighten the load of country officials who manage aid programs in their countries.
