This Evaluation (RE-266) covers the period from 1989 to 2001. The IDB has played an important role in meeting Guyana's financial needs, especially since 1995. The instruments chosen were mainly project and sector loans, technical assistance and debt relief. Non-financial products were scarce as the need for financial support increased. The programming exercise has been closely coordinated with other multilateral organizations. The larger issue is whether the fulfillment of financial requirements has been accompanied by progress in Guyana's ability to regain the path to economic development. Hence, this report explores that issue in analyzing the implementation and effectiveness of the Bank's program.
