IDA19 Results Measurement System

The IDA Results Measurement System (IDA RMS) tracks results in countries supported by IDA. The World Bank Group (WBG) introduced the RMS with the IDA13 Replenishment (July 2002) as a key reporting and accountability tool for tracking progress and reporting results achieved by IDA during each replenishment cycle. It was the first framework with quantitative indicators to monitor aggregate results established among multilateral development institutions. The IDA RMS is a central part of the WBG’s framework for tracking progress at an aggregate level and integral to the Bank’s efforts to improve the focus on results. The IDA RMS uses a three-tiered development results framework with 84 indicators to track results of IDA countries at an aggregate level.

Population living on less than US$1.90 a day (%)

Percentage of the world population living on less than $1.90 a day at 2011 international prices. Aggregation is average, weighted by the total population. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

WBG GOALS

Median growth rate of consumption/income per capita of the bottom 40 percent (%)

Median of the growth rates of average real per capita expenditure or income of the bottom 40% of every country’s population. The growth rate of the bottom 40% of the population of a country for year T is the average annual growth rate measured over a period of (roughly) five years leading up to (or close to) year T. Aggregation is an unweighted average. Data reported worldwide for all IDA countries with available data.

SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE GROWTH

GDP per person employed (Constant 2017 PPP $)

GDP per person employed is gross domestic product (GDP) divided by total employment in the economy. Purchasing power parity (PPP) GDP is GDP converted to 2017 constant international dollars using PPP rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP that a U.S. dollar has in the United States. Aggregation is weighted average. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

HUMAN CAPITAL

Number of children immunized (million)

Number of children immunized refers to the number of children 5 years of age and younger receiving vaccines purchased through an IDA-financed project, as well as the number of children immunized with vaccines purchased with other resources (i.e. GAVI or government funds) that are delivered through an IDA-supported program. It captures the number of children immunized and not the number of vaccination; that is, if the same child is immunized with multiple vaccines on the same day or has several immunization visits in a given year, the child will be counted only once. Thus simply tallying the monthly totals of the number of children receiving vaccines as recorded in immunization registers or health management information systems, will lead to double counting. Since contribution rather than attribution is to be measured, pro-rating based on proportion of IDA financing is not required.

HUMAN CAPITAL

People provided with access to improved water sources (million)

This indicator measures the cumulative number of people who benefited from improved water supply services that have been constructed through operations supported by IDA. This includes people newly provided with access to improved water sources and does not include people benefiting from rehabilitation works. Data is reported for IPFs, DPFs, Program-for-Results and Guarantees unless otherwise specified.

  • Improved water sources include piped household connections (house or yard connections) and community water points (public standpipes, boreholes, protected dug wells, and protected spring and rainwater collection). It does not include water provided through tanker trucks or vendors; unprotected wells or unprotected springs; surface waters (such as rivers, ponds, dams, lakes, streams, and irrigation channels); or bottled water. The definition of “improved water sources” follows the UNICEF-WHO Joint Monitoring Program definition.

The indicator measures the number of kilometers of all roads constructed, reopened to motorized traffic, rehabilitated, or upgraded by operations supported by operations funded by IDA. This includes rural and non-rural roads.

  • Rural roads are functionally classified in various countries below Trunk or Primary, Secondary or Link roads, or sometimes Tertiary roads. Such roads are often described as rural access, feeder, market, agricultural, irrigation, forestry or community roads. Typically, rural roads connect small urban centers/towns/settlements of less than 2000 to 5000 inhabitants to each other or to higher classes of roads, market towns and urban centers.
  • Non-rural roads are roads functionally classified in various countries as Trunk or Primary, Secondary or Link roads, or sometimes Tertiary roads. Typically, non-rural roads connect urban centers/ towns/ settlements of more than 5000 inhabitants to each other or higher classes of road, market towns and urban centers. Urban roads are included in non-rural roads.

DEVELOPMENT OUTCOME RATINGS

Satisfactory outcomes of IDA operations, as share of commitments %

Share of IDA operations and IDA commitments rated by the IEG as “moderately satisfactory” or higher on achievement of outcomes. Data are for projects exiting in the three previous fiscal years for which at least 60% of the projects for each fiscal year have been evaluated by IEG. The rating captures the extent to which a project’s original or formally revised development objectives were achieved.

The rating is based on three criteria:

(i) relevance of the objectives and design (relevance);

(ii) extent to which the objectives were achieved (efficacy); and

(iii) extent to which the operation achieves a higher rate of return than the opportunity cost of capital, or is able to provide a similar economic justification (efficiency).

Proactivity Index (%)

The ratio of projects in “actual” problem status 12 months ago that have had a proactivity action in the last 12 months divided by the total number of problem projects from 12 months ago. After being downgraded to MU or lower for DO and/or IP, a project needs to have one of the following actions taken within the next 12 months, otherwise, it will be considered a proactivity problem. The actions are upgrade, close, cancel >=20%, suspend, or restructuring (both level 1 and level 2) (note: restructurings for extensions of closing dates or reallocations are not counted as proactivity actions unless they are combined with other actions). Data of IDA-funded operations is reported.
