African Development Bank Country Policy and Institutional Assessments

Summary: The Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) is a system designed, by African Development Bank (ADB), to assess the quality of a country’s present policy and institutional framework, in terms of how conducive such a framework is to ensuring the efficient utilization of scarce development resources in the pursuit of sustainable and poverty reducing development in the Regional Member Countries (RMCs).

Main Points: The ADB uses the CPIA indicators to allocate concessional loans. 2010 CPIA criteria are grouped into three clusters:

Economic Management

·        Macroeconomic Management

·        Fiscal Policy

·        Debt Policy

Structural Policies

·        Policies and Institutions for Economic Cooperation,

·        Regional Integration & Trade Financial Sector

·        Business Regulatory Environment

Policies for Social Inclusion/Equity

·        Social Protection and Labour

·        Environmental Policies and Regulations

Governance Rating: Public Sector Management and Institutions

·        Property Rights and Rule-based Governance

·        Quality of Budgetary and Financial Management

·        Efficiency of Revenue Mobilization

·        Quality of Public Administration
Transparency, Accountability, and Corruption in the Public Sector

The dataset covers all ADB client countries.
