Overall, the evaluation has three major messages. First, the Bank has been able to produce a good range of regulatory and strategic documents, generally of acceptable quality and highly relevant to its own priorities. Second, the suites are not well organised, due to a lack of clarity and to issues around management of information. Third, the existence of the documents does not guarantee their correct and full implementation.

Implementing agencies have performed well but without an effective exit strategy. MFA should cease funding Angola and Cambodia, concentrating its resources in fragile states where it has an embassy, and where complementarity with wider security issues is assured.
