Implementation Progress   I   Types of IEG Recommendations

Implementation progress does not vary across the major categories of recommendations except for those related to improving monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Among the 170 recommendations tracked this year, the largest group (39 percent) covers Strategy and Policy. Most of the 25 evaluations analyzed included a recommendation for better M&E deployment, specifically: strengthening results frameworks and indicators to better assess the impact of interventions; working with the client to build capacity to collect data and conduct M&E; or establishing M&E systems for new or cross-cutting areas, such as innovation and entrepreneurship, public-private partnerships, and procurement.
