09-Feb-2022 | CA10076 | Country Strategy Evaluation

Recipient: Bank

Adapt the CSP priorities to the country context in the areas of skills development and private sector growth. The main focus of the Bank’s second pillar was vocational education and training.

The Bank might reorient as follows: i) Continue or expand training as a component of the Bank’s conventional infrastructure operations, leaving more generic skills and vocational training to grant-based development partners; ii) Focus on supporting private sector development that creates jobs for youth. ...

Evaluation of the Ex-Ante Additionality and Development Outcome Assessment Framework 2.0

22-Oct-2021 | TR10036 | Thematic Evaluation

Recipient: Bank

Further improve the ADOA’s assessment of additionality. Priority areas of action to consider include: i) Revisiting ADOA’s unique approach of considering only the collective additionality of all participating DFIs, and rather emphasize the totality of the Bank’s additionality. For example, the Bank could consider either dropping the rating of additionality and leaving it up to decision-makers to decide whether there is sufficient additionality, in light of other considerations, or alternatively using an aggregate score (rather than a rating) of additionality; ii) Reconsidering the Bank’s rating of additionality on the highest source of additionality; iii) Giving greater prominence to mobilization of private finance, an increasingly important aspect of additionality for all MDBs is the crowding-in of other sources of finance, particularly private finance; iv) Giving more attention in the assessment of additionality (in particular financial additionality) to the extent to which the B ...
