Mexico Country Program Evaluation FY08-17

PDF file
The core purpose of this document is to assess the development effectiveness of the World Bank Group country program in Mexico between FY2008 and FY2017. While Mexico has been a member of the OECD since 1994, its per capita GNI is the lowest among OECD members – 58 percent below the OECD average in 2016, in PPP terms – and its poverty rate is the highest in that group of mostly high income Show MoreThe core purpose of this document is to assess the development effectiveness of the World Bank Group country program in Mexico between FY2008 and FY2017. While Mexico has been a member of the OECD since 1994, its per capita GNI is the lowest among OECD members – 58 percent below the OECD average in 2016, in PPP terms – and its poverty rate is the highest in that group of mostly high income countries. Compared to upper middle income countries (UMICs), however, Mexico’s per capita GNI is 7 percent above the average of that group. Its latest, 2014 poverty rate, 5.7 percent, is comparatively low, measured using the international poverty line of $1.9 in 2011 PPP terms, but it is much higher, at 11.7 and 27.5 percent, if measured at poverty lines of $2.5 and $4, respectively (2005 PPP). The Government of Mexico’s strategic priorities have been focused on unlocking the country’s full potential, in terms not only of economic growth, but also of improved human development, gender equity, environmental protection and enhanced democratic governance and security. Over the period of analysis, the WBG aligned its strategic priorities with those embedded in the National Development Plans of two successive presidential administrations. The CPE will assess the WBG’s contributions to Mexico’s achievements in each of the Group’s priority areas of engagement. It will also evaluate the extent to which the WBG took advantage of potential synergies between the financial, knowledge and convening services that WBG institutions offered across its various engagement areas, to maximize overall contributions to Mexico’s national development goals.

PDF file
This proposed evaluation aims to inform the World Bank Group’s scaling up of support to situations of forced displacement. It will focus on the World Bank Group’s emerging goals and catalytic role in countries and subregions hosting large forcibly displaced populations and providing lessons from past support to inform the World Bank Group’s position going forward.

It will focus on the World Bank Group’s emerging goals and catalytic role in countries and subregions hosting large forcibly displaced populations and providing lessons from past support to inform the World Bank Group’s position going forward. The evaluation pursues IEG’s strategic priority of providing evidence on what works and why, and it supports two of the strategic engagement areas in which IEG seeks to advance evaluative evidence: investing in people, and inclusive and sustainable economic growth. The evaluation effort is timed to be an input for the IDA18 mid-term review and IDA19 discussions.
