Development Effectiveness = Results
Increasing development effectiveness of the Bank’s work takes a two-pronged approach: the one from the bottom-up focuses on measuring the results of each development intervention; and the other from the top-down focuses on measuring institutional-level results. The bottom-up approach was launched with the approval of the Development Effectiveness Framework (DEF) in 2008. The top-down approach is reflected in the IDB Results Framework approved for the Ninth General Capital Increase.
IDB’s development products are Country Strategies, Sovereign-Guaranteed Operations, Non-Sovereign Guaranteed Operations, and Knowledge and Capacity Building products. The chart below illustrates how development effectiveness is integrated from program design through completion for Sovereign Guaranteed Operations.
