The World Bank leads by example at the global, corporate, and country levels: by playing a key role in shaping the international aid effectiveness agenda, including through the high level forums on aid effectiveness from Rome (2003), Paris (2005), Accra (2008), and most recently Busan (2011); through institutional reforms which further aid effectiveness principles, with recent progress in the areas of transparency, accountability, results, and product modernization; through country level implementation in alignment with government priorities, supporting a country-owned and –led process of development; and by bringing these country level lessons and experiences to inform institutional efforts and the global agenda.
The Bank demonstrates strong performance on the Paris Declaration Survey—the key tool for monitoring international aid effectiveness—performing better over time, better than the overall development partner average, and meeting or nearly meeting most targets. Other external assessments (see below) confirm the Bank's strong performance.
