CGD has released an updated and greatly expanded MDB Reform Tracker. The aim is to provide a comprehensive, independently sourced tool to help MDB shareholders, managers, and other stakeholders evaluate progress as objectively as possible. The focus is on reforms that can be factually and consistently assessed across different institutions.

This updated tracker explores the progress of seven of the largest MDBs—the African Development Bank (AfDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), European Investment Bank Global (EIB Global), Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG), and World Bank Group (WBG)—in implementing five major categories of reform:

• Maximize capital efficiency
• Add capital to meet needs and manage risks
• Expand mandates to include global challenges
• Transform country engagement for efficiency and impact
• Achieve major expansion in private finance mobilization
