Explanation: This section presents a brief discussion of OED's objectives-based evaluation approach.
The World Bank uses an objectives-based approach to evaluation. This approach to evaluating development work has three major advantages:
it enhances accountability by focusing attention on the extent to which objectives agreed to with the Bank's Board of Executive Directors have in fact been achieved;
it promotes efficiency by relating the use of scarce resources to the accomplishment of specific outcomes; and
it allows comparisons by applying a common metric across the wide array of sectors and countries for which the Bank provides financing.
This Handbook is divided into six steps that encompass a process for planning an objectives-based evaluation. While the objectives-based approach is not the only approach for evaluating programs, it is appropriate for projects that use specific objectives to direct program activities.
