Comments received from NGOs on draft IDA14 report (English)

The draft International Development Association (IDA)-14 document seeks to build partnerships to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) through utilization of the twin pillars: fostering investment climate for sustainable growth and empowering the poor to take advantage of the growth. In pushing for investment and growth, the document fails to adequately address the underlying institutions and public infrastructures needed to build citizens’ empowerment and thus helps the poor to capture any gains that growth may bring. World vision’s comments will highlights pro-poor areas that have been omitted from this draft document. The new draft of the IDA-14 document addresses the following areas: the underlying assumptions that growth will lift the poor out of poverty, governmental accountability to their citizens not just the financial institutions and donors, the missing partners in meeting the MDGs, coherence of aid, debt and trade, and addressing the needs of orphans and vulnerable children.
