The IMF’s Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) is requesting input on topics for its future evaluations (see Bretton Woods Project Spring Meeting coverage April 2017 and Observer Winter 2015). The IEO develops its work programme on the basis of broad-based internal and external consultations and requests those interested to send proposals, which will be considered in the planning of its upcoming evaluation reports. All comments and suggestions received will be posted on the IEO’s website. It is also possible to send comments or suggestions on completed or ongoing evaluations. You can submit comments on this online form, or send them to email@example.com.
Originally created to help the poor escape poverty and deprivation, the World Bank became the most important advocate for the commercialised microcredit model. Yet, critics argued it undermined the chances of sustainable and equitable development to create a poverty trap of historic proportions.
While the World Development Report (WDR) 2018 on education has some redeeming features, it is part of the Bank's longstanding very narrow view of education, and is silent on education financing.
