What We Do

The Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) evaluates the development effectiveness of the World Bank Group. Our work provides evaluative evidence to help the World Bank Group deliver better services and results to its clients. We do so by generating lessons from past experience and accountability to shareholders and stakeholders at large. IEG is independent of the Management of the World Bank Group and reports directly to the Executive Board.

Data and Ratings

View ratings data on World Bank lending projects have closed in the past 12 Fiscal Years (FY) and for which IEG received Implementation Completion and Results Reports (ICRs). Some ratings are on a six-point scale and some are on a four-point scale. The percentage at the top of each bar is the percent of all projects rated (by number) that are in the top half of the scale for that rating.

Common themes included building resilience, monitoring who benefits, and increasing private sector engagement.
