Independent Country Program Review (ICPR) Implementation Guidelines
These Guidelines seek to provide greater clarity on how OVE will conduct Independent Country Program Reviews (ICPRs), a periodic product introduced through the approval of OVE's Country Product Protocol by the Boards. The purpose of this document is to provide transparency to the Boards, country authorities, and IDB and IDB Invest Management on the methods, tools and processes used by OVE in the ICPRs, and to foster consistency in their preparation. The Guidelines are the exclusive responsibility of OVE, in compliance with the Boards' mandate of conducting ICPRs under the conditions and principles approved in the Protocol. It is expected that the systematization introduced by the Guidelines will also contribute to internal and external training activities, and to extracting common lessons across countries.

Extended Country Program Evaluation Costa Rica 2015-2022
This document presents the evaluation conducted by the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) of the Country Program of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG) with Costa Rica from 2015 to 2022, spanning two strategic planning periods. This marks the sixth independent evaluation conducted by OVE of the IDB Group's program in Costa Rica. Previous evaluations covered the periods 1990-2001, 2002-2006; 2006-2010, 2011-2014, and 2015-2018. This evaluation examines the Bank's relationship with Costa Rica over an extended period. As outlined in the OVE Country Products Protocol, Extended Country Program Evaluations (XCPE), such as this one, are independent assessments of the last two country strategies and the corresponding Country Program to evaluate their relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability. XCPEs focus on both accountability and learning, aiming to provide assessments to the Board of Executive Directors and the Management of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and IDB Invest of the IDB Group's performance in the country and its Country Program. They also aim to share lessons learned to inform the Bank's future support, particularly in the context of the upcoming Country Strategy. XCPEs make recommendations expected to enhance the subsequent Country Strategy and Country Program. The Country Program evaluation examines the design, implementation, and outcomes of operations approved under the Country Program with Costa Rica between 2015 and 2022, considering the national context and relevant strategic documents. To conduct this evaluation, OVE analyzed country data, studied project documents, and conducted interviews (both virtually and in person) with country authorities, project executing units, the private sector, representatives from other development agencies, and IDB Group staff at the Country Office and Headquarters. Additionally, OVE conducted a mission to the country in June 2023. OVE appreciates the participation and collaboration of these counterparts, which enabled a rich exchange of information and reasonable access to verify the program's outcomes.

The Role of Agents and the Nature of Limitations in the Performance of Development Projects
Development practitioners aspire to improve lives, but achieving results is challenging. What prevents operations from achieving their objectives? Answering this question is critical to promote success. This Discussion Paper proposes to analyze operations first to identify if they faced limitations to effectiveness, then to identify which key stakeholders faced those limitations, and finally, whether such limitations were exogenous. Such an approach may strengthen accountability and learning. An analysis of 62 project completion reports evaluated in 2022 by the Inter-American Development Bank shows that success was contingent upon critical agents performance and the influence of exogenous factors. Four in 10 operations that failed had agents other than the executing agency face challenges. The same share of operations had agents face limitations derived from the project environment or third-party inputs beyond their control. Despite limitations, the proposed framework may provide insights for future work that promotes effectiveness.

Evaluación del Programa de País: Argentina 2016-2019
En el marco de su plan anual de trabajo 2020, la Oficina de Evaluación y Supervisión (OVE) ha preparado la evaluación del programa de país del Grupo del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (Grupo BID) con Argentina durante los años 2016 a 2019. De acuerdo con el protocolo del Banco para las evaluaciones de los programas de país (CPE, por sus siglas en inglés) (RE-348-3), el objetivo principal de esta evaluación es “proporcionar información sobre el desempeño del Banco en el país que sea creíble y útil, y que facilite la incorporación de lecciones y recomendaciones que puedan emplearse para mejorar la efectividad en el desarrollo de la estrategia general del Banco y su programa de asistencia al país”. Las CPE se preparan para informar el proceso de elaboración de una nueva Estrategia del Banco con el País (EBP) y analizan la asistencia brindada por el Banco al país, en particular la relevancia financiera y no financiera de la EBP y del programa, así como la ejecución, efectividad, eficiencia y sostenibilidad del programa. Esta es la cuarta evaluación independiente del programa de país del Banco con Argentina y fue preparada entre junio de 2019 y abril de 2020. Las tres evaluaciones anteriores cubrieron períodos de crisis económica y de posterior recuperación. La primera (RE-299) abarcó el período 1990-2002 y analizó el apoyo del Banco antes y después de la crisis de 2001/2002; la segunda (RE-361) cubrió el apoyo del Banco durante la recuperación económica de 2003-2008, posterior a la crisis; y la tercera (RE-491-1) cubrió el período 2009-2015 que estuvo marcado por la caída en los precios de los productos básicos y crecientes dificultades fiscales en la Argentina. Durante el período cubierto por la presente evaluación (2016-2019) el Gobierno trabajó en crear condiciones para una mayor inversión privada en un contexto macroeconómico y fiscal difícil, dada la crisis económica y monetaria que volvió a la Argentina en 2018/2019. Esta evaluación es la primera en el caso argentino que también cubre a BID Invest (anteriormente conocida como Corporación Interamericana de Inversiones, o CII), ya que el mandato de supervisión de OVE se amplió desde la consolidación de las ventanillas sin garantía soberana (SGS) del Grupo BID en 2016 (AG-9/15).
