IEG continued to innovate as needed throughout FY23 to provide World Bank management with timely evidence and recommendations to inform decisions around pressing issues. Escalating crises—including COVID-19; fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV); and rapidly worsening effects from climate change—demand more and faster responses from international development organizations. IEG supported the World Bank as it established the instruments for rapid responses and launched the process of adapting to the new global context with a work program focused on addressing immediate and longer-term needs.
In FY24, IEG will explore its comparative advantages to find more ways of swiftly gathering evidence and sharing important lessons as we remain strongly aligned with the strategic priorities of the Bank Group.
