Madagascar - Resilience Development Policy Operation Project (English)

Ratings for the Resilience Development Policy Operation Project for Madagascar were as follows: outcomes were moderately satisfactory, risk to development outcome was substantial, Bank performance was moderately satisfactory, and borrower performance was also moderately satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: the progress made by the Government in using its own M&E systems for reporting is commendable. Moving forward, these procedures could be further institutionalized by the WB requesting progress reports on a quarterly or bi-annual basis. Some of the prior actions related to enhancing transparency could have been more specific, to emphasize the accessibility of the information, particularly related to Air Madagascar and the list of tax expenditures. For example, the publication of statistics and reports could be accompanied with a press release to inform the public of its availability, and these processes could be outlined in the Letter of Development Policy. Promoting reforms that are supported by the WB (through IPFs and TA) as well as by other partners has both advantages and risks. The benefits are that the policy dialogue is reinforced, there is continuity and that challenging reforms receive implementation support, for example, through technical assistance. However, the risk is that the approach to implementing a reform may be subject to change (as was the case with payroll reforms supported by the EU) and that the timeliness may be affected (such as the TSA reforms). These factors are not entirely in the control of the WB, but could have been elaborated in the risks section.
