ABCs of IDA—Key Achievements by Country


For more than 50 years, the International Development Association (IDA) has taken on the most difficult and complex challenges. IDA is one of the largest sources of assistance for the world’s 75 poorest countries. Resources from IDA bring positive change to the 1.5 billion people who live in IDA countries. Since 1960, IDA has supported development work in 113 countries.

The world looks to IDA to address big problems—from relief for countries hit by Ebola, to reconstruction in Afghanistan, to countries dealing with growing climate-related disasters. No other international institution has the mandate, cross-sector knowledge, and resources to respond to complex global challenges with an exclusive focus on the world’s poorest countries.

IDA is innovative. We are helping countries leapfrog traditional energy sources by harnessing the sun to light homes and power businesses, and to deal with the effects of a changing environment while building climate-smart resilience for the long term. We are working to find new ways to integrate women and other vulnerable citizens into society as equals. And we are there for the long haul, helping put countries on a path to stability and growth after conflict and other disasters.

With IDA’s help, hundreds of millions of people have escaped poverty—through the creation of jobs, access to clean water, schools, roads, nutrition, electricity, and more.

IDA is replenished every three years with contributions from developed and developing country donors, as well as from two other agencies of the World Bank Group: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the International Finance Corporation.

IDA delivers. With help from IDA, 35 countries have “graduated.” Their economic development means they are no longer reliant on IDA support, and many have gone on to become IDA donors. Helping countries build the institutions and capacities to help themselves and putting them on a path to fund their own development is a priority for IDA.
