Getting to poverty - lessons from the World Bank~^!!^s record on supporting poverty reduction in country programs : Getting to poverty - lessons from the World Bank's record on supporting poverty reduction in country programs (English)

The Sub-Committee (SC) of the Committee on Development Effectiveness (CODE) considered Independent Evaluation Group~^!!^s (IEG~^!!^s) approach paper entitled getting to poverty: lessons from the World Bank~^!!^s record on supporting poverty reduction in country programs. They encouraged IEG to place focus on the factors that explain the diversity of outcomes and the gaps associated with data availability and quality, as well as the drivers for effective utilization of data in Bank~^!!^s engagement with partner countries and in the formulation of country programs. The SC requested that the evaluation capture both lessons-learned and good practices and inquired whether the title of the evaluation can be phrased in a clearer fashion. While the evaluation is to focus on extreme poverty reduction, members cautioned that poverty reduction is expressed as part of the World Bank Group (WBG) twin goals which are intertwined and that shared prosperity may also contribute to extreme poverty reduction.
