Hosted by the Independent Evaluation Group and the World Bank Group’s Vice Presidency of Learning, Leadership and Innovation

Can the World Bank get better at systematically leveraging the best evidence - from data and past experience – when shaping new development projects and programs?

On Thursday, October 8, 2015, the Independent Evaluation Group hosted a high-level panel of leaders in government and the private sector to discuss what can be done to ensure that the solutions offered by the World Bank are fully informed and the best for clients and stakeholders.
