Lending Instruments Report
The 2019-2020 Work Program of the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) included an assessment of the financial instruments of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The objective of this assessment was to evaluate the extent to which the IDBs set of financial (and non-financial) instruments has been aligned wit hand effective in responding to the (changing) needs of clients. This first report is a knowledge product focused on sovereign-guaranteed (SG) lending instruments and modalities that takes stock of the findings of previous evaluations carried out by OVE. The purpose of the report is threefold: to provide summary information, based on OVEs past work, mainly for new members of the IDBs Board of Directors; to serve as a technical input for Board and Management discussions; and to identify information and knowledge gaps to inform OVEs upcoming work on financial instruments.
