(Part 2 of a 2-part series about the findings of IEG’s evaluation Knowledge Flow and Collaboration Under the World Bank’s New Operating Model). Read Part 1.
This evaluation assesses how well the World Bank’s current operating model stimulates knowledge flow, and how well it enhances collaboration to deliver “integrated solutions” - or multisector and multiservice tasks and approaches - to clients.
This first systematic stocktaking by IEG of joint or co-financed projects within the World Bank Group offers insight on both benefits of, and challenges in, developing, structuring, supervising, monitoring and evaluating joint projects. It draws lessons from past experience, staff and client feedback, and highlights implications for WBG management regarding expectations of increased co-financed projects in the future.
