"The 2005 Annual Report on Operation Evaluation" examines the use of information by World Bank managers to improve development results and enhance the effectiveness of the Bank at the country level.

The Bank is making progress in strengthening the results focus of its monitoring and evaluation, but more attention is needed to improve performance measurement and tracking progress.
