CDF country pilots show wide differences in approach

15 September 1999

Wolfensohn’s Comprehensive Development Framework, which aims to make the World Bank more responsive to different policy proposals, and encourage long-term, integrated decision-making, is now being piloted in 12 countries.

Bank country directors are taking different approaches to implementation, with, for example, some making very little effort to gain civil society inputs.

A Bretton Woods Project briefing on the CDF, based on questions to Bank country directors in the pilot countries is available from the Project.
