Extended Country Program Evaluation: Dominican Republic: 2013-2020
The Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) has prepared its IDB Group Country Program Evaluation (CPE) for the Dominican Republic for the period 2013-2020, covering two strategic planning periods. It is OVE's fifth independent evaluation of the IDB Group's program in the Dominican Republic. Previous evaluations covered the periods 1991-2003 (document RE-306); 2004-2008 (document RE-371); 2010-2013 (document RE-453); and 2013-2016 (document RE-505). This evaluation, like others of this type, aims to analyze the IDB Group's relationship with the Dominican Republic from an independent and comprehensive standpoint, with the twofold purpose of strengthening accountability and sharing lessons learned to inform the Bank's future support and, in particular, the next country strategy. This CPE carefully examines the design, implementation, and outcomes of operations approved or active between 2013 and 2020, taking the national context and applicable strategic documents into account.
