Burundi - Completion and Learning Review : IEG Review (Inglês)

This review of the World Bank Group’s (WBG) Completion and Learning Review (CLR) covers the period of the Country Assistance Strategy (CAS), FY13-16, and updated in the Performance and Learning Review (PLR) dated February 25, 2015. The World Bank Group’s (WBG) CAS had three pillars (or focus areas): (i) improving competitiveness, (ii) improving resilience by consolidating social stability, and (iii) strengthening governance. The CAS was broadly aligned with the Government’s Second National Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRSP II), 2012-2015, which seeks to improve governance, growth and job creation, social services, and environmental/spatial management. Specifically, the CAS focus areas and objectives supported PRSP II objectives on quality of economic infrastructure, promotion of the private sector and job creation, strengthening the social safety net, capacity building and improved performance in the healthcare system, and fiscal management. Despite Bank efforts to adapt to changing conditions, implementation deteriorated sharply following the 2015 political crisis. The deterioration also reflected Bank performance issues. According to the CLR, there was insufficient attention to portfolio management, which contributed to deteriorating portfolio performance, although the Bank cancelled a number of planned operations after the 2015 political crisis unfolded. The CLR highlighted three lessons. First, political economy analysis can produce useful insights and inputs into operational work, and the sustainability of reforms under budget support. Second, less complex design, more realistic objectives, stakeholder consensus, and a long-term approach to implementation could result in better outcomes. Third, continued Bank engagement during a political crisis could enhance government trust in the Bank and the Bank’s capacity to conduct dialogue on critical development issues.
