How Can Donors Create Incentives for Results and Flexibility for Fragile States? A Proposal for IDA

  • Alan Gelb
Registered author(s):

    International Development Association (IDA) donors and others operating a country performance-based allocation system face two difficult problems: how to strengthen incentives to produce and document development results and how to increase flexibility for fragile states. Fragile states have the greatest need for projects, but their projects tend to rate poorly in performance-based allocations systems, which provide little incentive to produce successful projects in fragile states or other countries. [Working Paper No. 227]
