1996-2008 - Gabon - Management Response to Gabon Country Assistance Evaluation
Convergence with the findings of the portfolio review: The recommendations arising from the evaluation of Bank assistance to Gabon for the 1996-2008 period primarily reflect the need for greater strategic selectivity of Bank interventions, based on economic and sector work and more focused policy dialogue. Similarly, they call for more synergy in the use of the Bank's skills mix to step up the impact of interventions. They also mention the need to improve the quality at entry of operations and build the capacity of implementing agencies and portfolio monitoring and evaluation. Lastly, they call for greater Government ownership of operations. These recommendations are broadly corroborated by the findings of portfolio reviews and the completion report of the last strategy for Gabon (CSP 2006-2010).
