Documents & Reports

Simultaneous Disclosure

Selected Board papers are eligible for simultaneous disclosure--that is, they may be made publicly available before the Board has considered them.

Country Assistance Strategies, Project Appraisal Documents, and Program documents may be made publicly available before the Board has considered them provided that the client has given its written consent (e.g., during negotiations) to such early disclosure.

Operational policy papers and sector strategy papers may be simultaneously disclosed if they have had public consultations and Executive Directors (EDs) have already reviewed a draft version of the paper (e.g., during consideration by a Board Committee). If EDs have not previously reviewed the paper, it may still be made available before Board discussion if the Board approves such early disclosure.

After Board discussion, the final version of these documents are posted in Documents & Reports and the initial version will be retired from this list but available upon request. To follow Board business, visit the Board Calendar.

Simultaneously Disclosed Document(s):
