Approach Paper: Evaluation of the IDB's Emerging and Sustainable Cities Initiative
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has historically been very active in engaging in the region in urban projects, particularly urban improvement programs. This document presents OVE's approach to evaluate IDB's support to cities through the Emerging Sustainable Cities Initiative (ESCI). This evaluation was requested by the Board of Directors and included in OVE's work program for 2016-2017. It has as its main objective to assess ESCI's value-added to IDB's support to urban development.
