Improving global governance
Sep 29, 2013 | World Bank Group

This evaluation assesses knowledge-based activities in nine country programs selected from 48 knowledge-intensive programmes supported by the World Bank Group. The findings have implications for the Bank Group’s knowledge work on governance and incentives. The study identifies the factors in the success or failure of these activities that seek to contribute to policymaking or development outcomes, and points out areas of strength, weakness or risk for the Group. The evaluation also assesses the advisory services of the International Finance Corporation and their relationship with the Bank’s analytical and advisory activities.
