Aid works best when a country's overall policy and expenditure framework is appropriate, its institutions are strong, its private sector is vibrant, and its government and people are strongly committed to reform.

The World Bank recognizes that two important engines of economic growth that will benefit the poor are the private sector and poor people themselves. As a result, the Bank's strategic priorities—in Africa and elsewhere—are based on two pillars: building the climate for investment, jobs, and sustainable growth; and investing in poor people and empowering them to participate in development.
