Its goal is to review the specificity of the Bank's actions in a transition economy like DRC, and make recommendations that could help improve the effectiveness of Bank assistance while supporting the preparation and operationalization of its future strategies in DRC over the 2017-2021 period. The evaluation covers Bank strategies, operations and policy dialogue activities implemented through various financing mechanisms in DRC over the 2004-2015 period.1 The evaluation method is based on two major themes, namely: obtaining development results and performance-based management of Bank interventions. It is structured around 20 evaluation questions (Annex 1.b) which mainly focus on aspects of fragility and is based on a documentary review, discussions with experts and quick surveys on the intervention sites that included individual and group discussions, consultation workshops and direct observations.
