IFC’s project assessment tool elevates our focus on development impact to a new level. The Anticipated Impact Measurement and Monitoring (AIMM) system enables IFC to estimate the expected development impact of our investments—allowing us to set ambitious yet achievable targets, and select projects with the greatest potential for financial sustainability and development impact.
In addition to enabling IFC to assess project-level outcomes, the AIMM system allows IFC to examine the systemic effects on the overall market. It looks at how a project affects stakeholders and examines the broader effects on the economy and society, including how projects promote objectives that underpin our efforts to create markets—by promoting competitiveness, resilience, integration within and across markets, inclusiveness, and sustainability.
Underpinning the AIMM system will be a set of frameworks for analysis by sector. Each framework will outline the relevant set of project outcomes and market-creating benchmarks, as well as IFC’s detailed rating methodology for each sector. IFC is currently developing and will roll out 25 unique sector frameworks. We are now collecting feedback from stakeholders on these frameworks.
