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.
