What is an ARDE? 

The Annual Review of Development Effectiveness (ARDE) highlights the findings of recent IEG evaluations around a common theme, synthesizing lessons that can be used to increase the development effectiveness of World Bank assistance. Recent reviews in the series have focused on the World Bank's contribution to poverty reduction, how the Bank's programs are helping client countries achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and the effectiveness of Bank support for policy reform.

ARDE 2009 - Achieving Sustainable Development
arde 09 CoverThe global financial crisis has driven up demand for World Bank support to mitigate the effects of the crisis on the poor. At the same time, concern has intensified that every development dollar be used effectively and efficiently to meet development objectives. Although it has always been important for the Bank to demonstrate that its work is producing real results for people living in poverty, it is particularly critical to do so this year.

The Annual Review of Development Effectiveness 2009 presents the World Bank’s record of performance in achieving outcomes from its projects and country programs and focuses on the Bank's contributions in supporting environmental sustainability.
