World Bank Group (WBG) support was expansive in FY20, reaching well over one billion beneficiaries during FY19-FY20 across the full range of sectors. For example,  WBG support with ICT services reached 489 million of beneficiaries, of which 143 million where in FCS countries, and 389 million benefited from support to health services and systems.  World Bank social safety net programs beneficiated 46.3 million people of which about half were females. Social safety net services will scale up dramatically, as the risk of more people and more so females are expected to fall into poverty because of the pandemic.

With an emphasis on upstream challenges like strengthening national policies and building institutions, the WBG tailors its support to help client countries address their own specific challenges to achieving the twin goals and SDGs. The breadth and depth of this support—not always easy to quantify or aggregate—goes well beyond the topline statistics. 

For example, IFC and Global Infra Facility provided technical assistance  to structure Private Public Partnership (PPP) that led to $500 million  private investment in modernized airport in the Philippines.

In Sierra Leone, the REDiSL project supported over 1,800 schools to improve the quality of education through performance-based financing and helped more than 1.2 million students and teachers during the Ebola crisis. This was achieved through the provision of remote education (radio) during lockdowns, and accelerated learning activities during the recovery phase. Lessons learned from the project can be useful to address challenges posed by COVID-19.

The Zimbabwe Idai Recovery Project (ZIRP) delivered quick results that are also sustainable, taking a multi-sector approach based on the existing and surge capacities of partners on the ground. To date, the ZIRP has reached over 200,000 beneficiaries through early and medium-term disaster recovery support, including over 150,000 women

These examples are drawn from a database of over one thousand results stories from across the globe, available at www.worldbank.org/results.
