"The World Bank launched its Open Access Policy in 2012 as part of its Open Development Agenda to enable the widest possible dissemination of its research and knowledge and to increase the users’ ability to discover and use pertinent information. The OA Policy mandated that Bank knowledge products shall be made available to the public under Creative Commons (CC) licenses. At that time, the World Bank was the first major Intergovernmental Organization to adopt CC licenses. The Bank incorporated CC BY into its Open Access Policy as the default license for Bank-produced formal publications. This license allows users to freely share, re-use, and distribute World Bank content – even commercially – without prior permission as long as the World Bank is attributed."
