This study examined project sustainability at the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) by reviewing evaluation evidence and good practice literature from CDB and other development organisations; and suggests practical guidance on “managing for sustainability” and entry points for future action.
The primary objectives were to:
(a) develop an understanding of the conceptual frameworks and procedures used by other development agencies to assess and manage for project sustainability;
(b) assess the sustainability of projects financed by CDB and identify the major factors that influence project sustainability;
(c) identify the lessons learned and recommendations developed by other international development agencies to improve project sustainability; and
(d) recommend a simple conceptual framework and procedures to facilitate the Bank’s efforts in managing for project sustainability.
