Measuring and reporting results is critical to ensure development effectiveness of our operations. The Bank works with client countries to improve measurement systems that help them track progress, learn lessons, and make timely corrections to achieve their development goals. The Bank demonstrates results using various channels, both quantitatively and qualitatively. This is to capture the development impact of our diverse portfolio of tailored solutions for our client countries’ unique development challenges. See the factsheets to learn more about how the Bank measures and reports results.

Development Impact - Addressing COVID-19


Maldives' COVID-19 Response

After establishing the first Catastrophe Deferred Drawdown Option ever in the country to explicitly include health emergencies as an integral part of a country’s disaster risk management and resilience program, the government was able to quickly access funds when COVID-19 emerged. The National Emergency Operation Plan and the Health Emergency Operation Plan were activated to lead an effective and well-coordinated multi-agency response. The project also supported the government to expand the water and sewerage network to provide people access to safe water and adequate sanitation at a time when it was greatly needed, with 70 percent and 80 percent water and sewerage coverage.
