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


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.
