Application of the Performance Based Allocation (PBA) System to Fragile States

The aims of this project were to: Provide input for discussion at the coordination meeting of IDA15 EU deputies in June 2007; Provide scientific background information for strengthening the German position on the IDA15 special theme of ‘fragile states’ and for the German evaluation of the Performance Based System (PBA) in general; Provide recommendations on Germany’s position on PBA with respect to fragile states.

This project involves an analysis of World Bank data and analysis of current literature, including existing studies on PBA and fragile states and current debate within the World Bank, NGOs and the academic community.
