Working Paper 55 - Strategic Considerations for Building a Healthy Pipeline for Bank Group Operations
The African Development Bank has, since 1982, experienced a problem with bunching of projects towards the fourth quarter of each year’s Lending Program. Contributing factors include both systemic and endogenous constraints as well as exogenous constraints. This paper proposes a holistic approach, that recognizes all the forces at work in the development of Public Investment Programs (PIPs) at the RMC level as well as the Bank’s internal processes that help to guide and generate the pipeline.
