IFC Development Results
IFC’s development impact is the long-term sustained effect of our interventions on people’s lives.
Measuring the results of IFC’s work –by effectively tracking progress and assessing its impact – is critical to understanding how well IFC’s strategy is working and whether IFC is reaching and making a difference for the people and markets that most need IFC’s help.
The WBG adopted a unified strategy for achieving its goals of ending poverty and boosting shared prosperity and IFCs strongest contribution to these goals comes from promoting private enterprise with the objectives of creating and providing quality jobs and facilitating greater and more inclusive economic growth, taking into account the need to ensure sustainable development.
