The Evaluation Team is pleased to present this revised report on the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) Phase IV Mid-Term Evaluation. CGAP is an independent policy and research centre dedicated to advancing financial access for the world’s poor. It is supported by more than 30 development agencies and private foundations and housed at the World Bank.
CGAP Phase IV commenced in July 2008 and continues until June 2013. This mid-term evaluation covers the period 1 July 2008 through 30 June 2011. The evaluation was commissioned by the CGAP Council of Governors as a requirement of the World Bank Group’s Internal Evaluation Group (IEG) for the Global Partnership Programs. CGAP’s CG is the primary client for the evaluation; CGAP managers are the secondary clients.
