Measuring and reporting results is critical to ensure development effectiveness of our operations. The World Bank works with client countries to improve measurement approaches and systems that help them track progress, learn lessons, and make timely corrections to achieve their development goals. The Bank demonstrates results using various channels, both quantitatively and qualitatively. This is to capture the development impact of our diverse portfolio of tailored solutions for our client countries’ unique development challenges.

IDA mobilized at record speed and scale, while maintaining a relentless focus on outcomes, in line with the Roadmap for Strengthening the World Bank Group’s Outcome Orientation. And this ability to deliver results is deeply rooted in a strong base of knowledge and evidence.
