1990-1998 - Mauritania - Evaluation of Bank Assistance to the Social Sector

15-Jan-2014

This report evaluates Bank Group assistance to Mauritania’s social sectors, notably in education, health and poverty reduction. The evaluation focuses on the Bank’s operations strategies, lending operations and non-lending activities, with special emphasis on Bank interventions in the country since 1990. The criteria used for evaluation were: relevance, efficacy, efficiency, impact on institutional development and sustainability. The methodology adopted was based on available basic documentation and field work. Collecting data for closed projects was a major problem. Only one completion report had been drafted or was available for the approximately ten projects evaluated. Hence, there is a certain loss of institutional memory for some old projects, aggravated by the institutional changes that have occurred in the country and the rapid mobility of project managers.
