One of our partners, The World Bank Group (WBG), is a family of five international organizations that make leveraged loans to poor countries. It is the largest and most famous development bank in the world and is an observer at the United Nations Development Group.  The bank is based in Washington, D.C. and provided around $30 billion in loans and assistance to “developing” and transition countries in 2012.  The bank’s mission is to reduce poverty.

The World Bank’s (the IBRD and IDA’s) activities are focused on developing countries, in fields such as human development (e.g. education, health), agriculture and rural development (e.g. irrigation, rural services), environmental protection (e.g. pollution reduction, establishing and enforcing regulations), infrastructure (e.g. roads, urban regeneration, electricity), large industrial construction projects, and governance (e.g. anti-corruption, legal institutions development). The IBRD and IDA provide loans at preferential rates to member countries, as well as grants to the poorest countries. Loans or grants for specific projects are often linked to wider policy changes in the sector or the country’s economy as a whole. For example, a loan to improve coastal environmental management may be linked to development of new environmental institutions at national and local levels and the implementation of new regulations to limit pollution, or not, such as in the World Bank financed constructions of paper mills along the Rio Uruguay in 2006.

The GIZ Programme of Support to Public Finance Reforms (SPFR) in Kenya advised the National Treasury (formerly known as Ministry of Finance) on implementing Kenya’s Financial reform strategy and adapting the public finance system to the new constitution.

The programme advised the Kenyan National Treasury and various other partners (independent commissions and oversight authorities as well as parastatal institutions and the Parliament) on improving the public budget and procurement system at national and county level in accordance with the principles of Good Financial Governance (e.g. transparency, development-orientation and efficiency).

The GIZ-SPFR programme was a supporter of the IFMIS re-engineering from the very beginning. A report about the former design of the IFMIS reform programme in 2010 led to the establishment of a separate department for IFMIS to guarantee the timely and adequate roll out of the system. Once the department was operational, a change management strategy was adopted and a strategic plan for 2011 to 2013 developed. Technical assistance through consultants and advisors was given from GIZ to support the department in maintaining the system, rolling out the capacity building for the users in preparation to the roll out of IFMIS to the county Governments.
