African Development Bank Country Policy and Institutional Assessments
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).
The ADB uses the CPIA indicators to allocate concessional loans. 2010 CPIA criteria are grouped into three clusters:
- Macroeconomic Management
- Fiscal Policy
- Debt Policy
- 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.
