Bank, T. W. (n.d.). An Independent Review of World Bank Support to Capacity Building in Africa : The Case of Ghana. Retrieved from


The Bank?s support for capacity building has contributed to both the successes and the failures. Since FY1993, the Bank committed about $1.04 billion of investment lending in the four sectors reviewed of which $337 million (33 percent) was allocated to capacity building activities. In addition, the Bank provided some $689 million in adjustment/budget support of which $296 million (43 percent) supported capacity building measures. No overall strategy for capacity building was articulated and the interrelationships between public sector reform and sector programs were not explicitly managed. There has generally been somewhat greater success in organizational development than in institutional change or human resource development. The sectorwide approach, where the Bank plays a supporting role rather than driving the agenda, appears to be more promising for capacity building than investment lending. While this has tended to lessen traditional support to capacity building at the technical level more difficult, the tradeoffs in terms of ownership and attention to the institutional framework appear to be positive. Overall, the Bank?s support to capacity building in Ghana over the past decade is rated marginally satisfactory.
