Improving Business Environment for Prosperity (IBEP) Program

Global Influence Window

IBEP capitalizes on the WBG’s global reach and cross-country knowledge to inform the design and implementation of the IBEP country projects. It also showcases the experience of the program countries for the benefit of other developing countries and fosters peer-to-peer learning opportunities. The Global Influence Window thus develops and leverages a range of analytical and global engagement initiatives across its five pillars focused on (i) analytics, (ii) reform toolkits, (iii) adaptive policy design, (iii) the bi-annual Global Investment Competitiveness Report, and (iv) peer-to-peer learning events bringing together policymakers with business and academia leaders to enhance partnerships, exchange ideas, and develop solutions.


The Global Influence Window has continued to produce operationally relevant diagnostics and reform tools. The headline results delivered with the support of IBEP since program inception include:

  • 246 analytical and policy outputs, including working papers, country reports, methodology notes, blogs, databases, etc;
  • 88 projects or activities of the World Bank Group leveraging IBEP outputs;
  • 85 countries benefiting from IBEP outputs;
