International Development Association (IDA) at the World Bank

July 3, 2017

IDA provides an efficient channel for Official Development Assistance, where donor resources are pooled together, along with other resources such as repayments, to provide a stable and substantial source of funding for basic services in countries with the most need.

The causes and consequences of fragility do not have national borders, and can even have global dimensions. IDA’s increased focus on fragility will allow the global community to both respond to fragility, conflict, and violence, and to mitigate these risks.

IDA also takes an integrated approach to development in the countries in which it invests. For example, in recent years, 38 percent of IDA’s commitments were focused on developing the private sector to facilitate broad, inclusive growth in countries and create resilient economies.
