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.

After a sustained period of considerable achievement in poverty reduction, developing countries are now navigating an increasingly uncertain time. Developing countries overall are estimated to have achieved, ahead of schedule, the Millennium Development Goal of cutting the 1990 rate of extreme poverty in half.

Developing countries overall are estimated to have achieved, ahead of schedule, the Millennium Development Goal of cutting the 1990 rate of extreme poverty in half. Strong economic growth contributed substantially to this, but the outlook now is for a slowdown in growth of the global economy. The global development context has direct implications for the World Bank Group's clients, and ultimately for the World Bank Group itself. In particular, three sets of challenges can be distilled from the current global development context. First, in the years ahead, Bank Group clients will need to sustain and improve development results against a backdrop of lower, more uncertain economic growth. Second, Bank Group clients will need to address disparities in development progress. Third, clients will need to deal with increasingly interlinked development issues that call for joint or collective action among the growing number of sovereign and nonsovereign actors on the global development scene. Based on recent findings and lessons from project, sector, country, and corporate evaluations, this report draws out how these contextual implications can help the Bank Group prioritize issues on which to focus to most effectively support continued global development and poverty reduction.
