Delivering development results : a retrospective review of IDA’s sixteenth replenishment (English)

The IDA16 replenishment reached a historic record of SDR32.8 billion (US$49.3 billion) for the three year replenishment period (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2014). The robust replenishment level enabled a significant scaling up of IDA support to the world’s poorest countries in the three years before the 2015 target date for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Under the overarching theme of ‘delivering development results; the IDA16 package of policy actions significantly enhanced IDA’s effectiveness, including through a greater focus on results and further mainstreaming in its core program of the four special themes of crisis response, gender, climate change, and fragile and conflict-affected countries (FCS). IDA continued to leverage its platform role in supporting IDA countries to recover from the financial crisis and meet emerging challenges, using its core strengths (financial resources, multi-sectoral knowledge base, global reach and convening power) to leverage partnerships at the country, regional and global levels. IDA16 also brought in a number of important enhancements and innovations into IDA’s policy and financing framework. These include the establishment of the dedicated Crisis Response Window (CRW) following a successful pilot in IDA15, measures to increase internal resources and the expansion of the IDA Results Measurement System (RMS) to include indicators of IDA’s operational and organizational effectiveness (‘IDA’s report card’), which became the precursor to the World Bank’s Corporate Scorecard. This retrospective reviews the implementation of the IDA16 replenishment agreement, including IDA’s lending and non-lending program, progress on agreed policy actions and results achieved during the replenishment period.
