As part of its 2015 annual work plan, the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) has prepared the Bank's country program evaluation (CPE) with Uruguay for the period 2010-2015. This CPE is the third occasion on which OVE has evaluated the Bank's country program with Uruguay. The previous evaluations covered the periods 1991-2004 (document RE-312) and 2005-2009 (document RE-389). The evaluation is organized into four chapters plus annexes. Chapter I looks at the general context of the country. Chapter II analyzes the Bank's program in 2010-2015 from a general standpoint, looking in particular at the country strategy's relevance, and analyzes the program as implemented. Chapter III analyzes, from a sector perspective, the implementation, effectiveness, and sustainability of the operations and the level of progress toward the Bank's strategic objectives. Chapter IV sets out the conclusions and recommendations. The analysis of the documentation and data was supplemented by interviews with various actors involved in implementation of the program, including government authorities, Bank staff, execution units, and multilateral agencies active in the country.
