Bank, T. W. (n.d.). Outcome of Bank-Supported Cbd/Cdd Projects. Retrieved from


Operational costs to the Bank of CBD/CDD versus non-CBD/CDD projects and found them to be higher for CBD/CDD by about 10 percent (figure 3.7 and Annex J). Bank staff perceptions (Annex L), revealed through a staff survey, are in line with these findings. No study has yet taken this issue further to explore what this higher cost to the Bank means in comparison with benefits from a CBD/CDD approach. For the Bank, these higher costs could be justified under two conditions: first, if the higher costs are fixed, and ultimately?as the Bank does more CBD/CDD?its average costs for undertaking these interventions would potentially fall; and, second, if the benefits to the client countries are going to be so large from the new approach that the Bank is willing to bear the additional costs in the interest of achieving poverty reduction. There is no evidence that the first condition is going to hold. If Bank projects adhere to a true learning process approach (Korten 1980), each community intervention must be made specific to the needs of the particular community involved. Under these circumstances, the likelihood of a decline in costs resulting from scaling up is low.
