Bank, T. W. (n.d.). The Effecttiveness of World Bank Support for Community-Based and Driven Development : Conclusions. Retrieved from


The Bank has not, until recently, systematically identified and tracked its portfolio of CBD/CDD projects, and therefore has lacked a comprehensive understanding of the evolution and scope of its work in community development. It also has not been sufficiently clear about the objectives of using CBD/CDD approaches, criteria for choosing among different community development approaches, or about how to measure the results. Although the Bank has been involved in CBD/CDD for a long time, a database of projects using community development approaches was only established for projects approved from 2000 onward. Overall development effectiveness can be assessed only on a clearly defined portfolio. Furthermore, effectiveness can only be assessed against clear objectives, preferably with clear indicators against which to judge success. Different community development approaches have varying community capacity requirements, so it is important to ensure that Bank staff, as well as the Bank?s clients and the ultimate beneficiaries, understand the expectations under the project. For example, the concept of empowerment, a major justification for the most recent generation of CDD projects, is not uniformly understood within the Bank or, even more important, between the Bank and its clients. Regarding community participation, the surveyed beneficiaries appear to have a very limited, pragmatic understanding of the concept that differs significantly from the Bank?s intent.
