Mr. Fraeters is Manager at the World Bank Institute and leads the World Bank’s South-South Knowledge Exchange agenda. This new agenda for the World Bank responds to the rapidly growing demand from developing countries to be connected directly and learn from other countries who have faced, or are facing, similar development challenges. His team leads the development of the financing, brokering, design and implementation mechanisms that allow such peer-to-peer learning to happen with high quality and on a global scale. As part of this work, Han has oversight over the multi-donor South-South Facility. He is the World Bank’s focal point for South-South Cooperation and Knowledge exchange for the G20 as well as the Aid Effectiveness agenda. Han is also co-chair of the Global Board of the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN). He has an MA in Philology and in Media & Information Sciences from the University of Leuven in Belgium.
