Approach Paper: Special Programs Evaluation

Jul 2014
The evaluation seeks to shed light on whether the current practice and arrangements for allocating $100 million from Ordinary Capital (OC) net income to 19 Special Programs (SPs) is an effective way to support technical cooperation to help address priority social and economic development needs in the Bank's borrowing member countries. The evaluation will cover the functioning of OC funded SPs from 2005 through mid-2014, with attention to the implementation of the reforms proposed since 2008 and their effects on SP performance.
