"IFC's vision is that people should have the opportunity to escape poverty and improve their lives”.
“To help achieve this, we will foster a culture in which IFC's strategy and operations are driven by development results. A results-focused culture will expand the value we provide to our clients and ultimate beneficiaries, help foster best practice among DFIs, and demonstrate IFC's development impact to all stakeholders".
Measuring the results of our work is critical to understanding how well our strategy is working—and whether IFC is reaching people and markets that most need our help.
Our results-measurement system helps drive IFC strategy, operational decision making, and staff incentives, with a growing emphasis on articulating and measuring the poverty-reduction effects of our work.
This deliberate and systematic approach allows us to track progress of our projects throughout their life cycle and incorporate lessons learned into our operations so we can improve future goal setting and project design. It is integral to IFC’s efforts to become more results-focused, and to increase transparency and accountability to stakeholders.
