Managing crisis and building resilience : a retrospective review of IDA's fifteenth replenishment (English)

The Fifteenth International Development Association (IDA15) replenishment aimed to scale up IDA's support for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to reaffirm IDA as a leading channel of multilateral aid for low-income countries. The replenishment mobilized record expected commitment authority of SDR28.1 billion (US$42.8 billion). IDA's core challenge during IDA15 was to fulfill wide-ranging IDA15 commitments while meeting rapidly evolving crisis-related demands linked to the volatile global environment. The IDA15 retrospective review covers three main areas: 1) IDA's lending and non-lending program and evolving policy framework; 2) IDA's country-level effectiveness and results, including IDA's work with fragile countries and IDA's crisis response; and 3) IDA in the global aid architecture. The IDA15 Results Measurement System (RMS) and other tools for supervision, performance monitoring and impact evaluation have positioned IDA to identify the extent of progress achieved, along with emerging challenges in performance in IDA15. The global development finance architecture grew in complexity during IDA15, with increased aid fragmentation and earmarking. Overall, the IDA replenishment process incorporates important elements of institutional learning and continuous improvement of IDA's policy framework.
