Assessing Governance, Staff Guidance Note on the Governance Rating of the Bank’s Country Performance Assessment
AbstractThe purpose of this note is to provide guidance to Bank staff on the sources of evidence available to inform the assessment of the governance rating and thereby reduce the scope for subjectivity of the annual CPA exercise. It is designed in particular for Country Economists responsible for the coordination of the CPA exercise, undertaken each year. It aims at enhancing the objectivity, quality, consistency and robustness of the assessment of the governance rating, providing sources of evidence to inform the judgments made on governance performance across countries and trends over time. It emphasizes the availability of Africa-based sources of information and evidence.
