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.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Lesson Library

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Lesson Library

As the global community ramps up efforts to confront the Coronavirus pandemic, evidence from the responses to past crises offers important lessons on what worked and why. These lessons can help guide the various responses to the health and economic challenges posed by the Coronavirus.

To assist this process, IEG has created a repository of relevant work, bringing together a range of evaluations of responses to past global crises such as the 2008 financial crisis and the 2006 Avian Influenza, to make the lessons generated more accessible. This repository will be updated regularly as new reports and analysis become available.
