Development Effectiveness assesses the extent to which an IFC project achieved its intended development results and advanced private sector development. The rating is a synthesis – not an average – of project performance in five areas: strategic relevance, results including outputs, outcomes and impacts, and efficiency.

The Development Effectiveness score is a portfolio-level aggregated score that reflects the percentage of projects receiving positive ratings among all projects completed within a fiscal year. In FY19, 107 advisory projects were completed and assessed for Development Effectiveness ratings.
