Oct 2004
This report (RE-298) summarizes OVE's evaluation of the IDB's program in Brazil during 1993-2003. The paper starts with a selective, brief analysis of background that is needed to inform the evaluation. It includes an assessment of the programming process and the relevance and coherence (hence the implied value-added) of the Bank's activities and approach. It also analyzes the composition and the efficiency of delivery of the program, investigates evaluability and the tracking of results, and assesses the prospects and the efficacy of the program in delivering results. Finally, the document provides a conclusion and distills recommendations for consideration by the Bank.
