Governance and Anticorruption Evaluation: Desk Review Data for Country Programs and Projects
What data has been disclosed?
As part of its dissemination of the GAC evaluation, IEG has disclosed its entire data set of results from its desk review of GAC elements in Bank projects and country programs. Disaggregated data include peer-reviewed responses for all the questions addressed by evaluators in each of the projects and country programs in the evaluation sample. These data provide the basis for the econometric analysis of the GAC responsiveness of Bank operations before and after the launch of the 2007 strategy.
Why it is important?
The data were shared with World Bank management prior to finalizing the report. By publishing these data here, IEG has taken an important step in enhancing the transparency and accessibility of its analyses and ratings from one of its flagship operations. The disclosure is also intended to make data available to development practitioners and researchers outside the Bank including those in governments, other donor agencies, and research and academic institutions around the world. Finally, following the Busan High Level Forum, it is envisaged that development partners in governments and donor agencies, as well as civil society, will become increasingly interested in monitoring the transparency, inclusiveness, and accountability of development projects. One possible value added of this disclosure is that IEG's approach to benchmarking GAC elements in projects and programs could be adapted and applied more extensively by developing countries or other donor agencies.
How should the data be read?
Attached is a brief explanation of the dataset along with a list of acronyms and a glossary of terms. Appendix A of the main GAC evaluation report provides a more detailed explanation of sampling and methodologies, and Appendixes C and D present the data in a more aggregated form. Appendix E includes the results of the extensive econometric analysis of the desk review data.
