Report On The CPIA Meeting At The World Bank Office Held On The 12th September, 2018

The CPIA more succinctly measures the extent which a country’s policy and institutional framework supports poverty reduction, sustainable growth and the effective use of development assistance.

The current Chief Economist of the World Bank for the African division, Albert Zeufack also made an emphatic statement about the CPIA not only important because of the better scores that lead to concessional financing by the World Bank to low income countries but also because it is an excellent tool for policy formulation and monitoring. This tool is the result of a largely consultative process with staff and other experts of the Bank and not necessarily reflective of the Board of Executive Directors views.
