RAP 2017 will be the eighth in a series that began in 2010, and it is the fifth one since IEG adopted the approach of focusing on a specific theme, “Environmental sustainability”. In this report, IEG will draw on both this work and its body of project level evaluative evidence with additional desk-based analyses to provide an overarching picture of how the WBG is addressing environmental sustainability.

Results and Performance of the World Bank Group 2014
The year 2015 is pivotal in international development. As the era of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) concludes, work continues to take forward the unfinished MDG agenda and to define and meet the more ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As the era of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) concludes, work continues to take forward the unfinished MDG agenda and to define and meet the more ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In preparation for the new challenges, the World Bank Group is changing. A new strategy in 2013 set two ambitious goals: ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity for the bottom 40 percent in a sustainable manner. To achieve the twin goals and contribute significantly to the SDGs, it is important to reflect on the Bank Group's experience with the MDGs to draw lessons for its engagement with the post-2015 agenda. This report also reviews the effectiveness of the Bank Group's portfolio and country programs for delivering results, and its implementation of Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) recommendations.

RAP 2014 will be the fifth in a series that began in 2010. As the methodology for the RAP is established, in lieu of an Approach Paper, this Concept Note outlines the context and rationale for, and scope of the proposed report. Part I will focus on the special theme, "Achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)--the WBG's Contributions," and will draw lessons for the future, especially in relation to the organization's pursuit of the twin strategic goals. It will compile evaluation evidence on how the WBG engaged with the MDGs to generate lessons that will be helpful for future engagement in the post-2015 agenda. In particular, it will examine process-related issues to address key questions, such as (i) how have the MDGs influenced WBG activities and decisions at the corporate, institutional, sector, and country levels; and (ii) what lessons can be drawn for WBG engagement post-2015. To achieve a greater level of granularity in the exploration of the influence of the MDGs on the WBG, the RAP 2014 will develop and examine two sets of illustrative examples at sector and country levels. Part II of RAP 2014 will focus on recent trends in the results and performance of the WBG and will seek to shed new light on the factors influencing the WBG's effectiveness. RAP 2014 will report on and analyze outcome ratings from IEG reviews of the WBG's self-assessments of its country strategies and financing interventions (including IFC advisory services and MIGA guarantees) to gauge project and program performance. RAP 2014 will follow a similar mixed approach and methodology used in previous RAPs. The report will analyze data from a variety of different sources, synthesize learning from recent evaluations, and seek inputs from WBG management and staff, especially on MDG-related issues. Where knowledge gaps exist, RAP 2014 will candidly note deficiencies, and suggest issues for future study.

Robust progress on both poverty reduction and shared prosperity will require sustained growth in developing countries in the face of major financial, economic, and environmental risks and uncertainties. Lending by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) has fallen back to pre-crisis trend levels. In FY13, for the first time ever, International Development Association (IDA) commitments exceeded IBRD commitments. Investments by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) reached historically high levels in FY13, driven by rapid growth of short-term finance. Commitments by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) rose on the heels of a new instrument covering risks of the non-honoring of sovereign financial obligations.
