Title: Introduction to the Performance Based Allocation System

Introduction to the Performance Based Allocation
Smallholder Agriculture as a Business Legal
Dimensions of Building Inclusive Value Chains
April 2011
PBAS Objectives
  • to have a transparent rules-based approach to
    resource allocation
  • to provide a performance incentive for member
    countries, particularly in regard to the quality
    of policies and institutions in the rural sector
  • to allocate resources according to need when
    countries perform equally well.

Decisions Taken and Progress Made
  • Feb 2003 Governing Council approves the
    Consultation Report including the establishment
    of PBAS
  • Sep 2003 EB approves the operational framework)
  • April 2005 EB approves first set of loans and
    country grants developed under PBAS
  • Feb 2006 Governing Council approves Consultation
    Report for the uniform system of allocation
    across the lending programme beginning with the
    2007 programme of work
  • April 2006 EB approves modification in weight
    given to population and introduction of rural
    population and,
  • April 2007 EB approves introduction of Debt
    Sustainability Framework (DSF).

Countries Included in Allocation Periods
  • 2005-07 119 countries (36 minimum allocation)
  • 2007-09 90 countries ( 9 minimum allocation)
  • Active countries where IFAD expected to have
    new lending or DSF grant operations in
  • PBAS 3 year allocation period aligned to
    Replenishment period
  • 2010-12 115 countries (26 minimum allocation)
  • Use of country-specific grants for knowledge
  • Portfolio 240 ongoing projects under
    implementation in 93 member recipients.

Allocation Process and Variables
  • IFAD similar to best practices in other IFIs and
    Funds that use a performance-based allocation
  • Variables that are common to almost all IFI
  • Needs variables
  • Performance variables
  • Each year country scores updated and allocations
  • October 2010 analysis for the calculation of
    2010 country scores and the allocations for 2011,
    2010 allocations frozen, 2012, indicative
  • Applied to all lending programmes, DSF eligible
    countries and all country-specific grants.

Application of PBAS formula
  • PBAS derivation of country scores
  • PBAS allocation process

Allocations take into account DSF.
Evolving practices of other IFIs
  • Introduction of new countries final year of the
    allocation period limited number
  • Set-asides the need for financing for fragile
  • Minimum and maximum allocations review the
    levels of the annual minimum and maximum
    allocations and,
  • Reallocation examine the modalities for
    reallocation of unused funds in the final year of
    the allocation period.

Rural Sector Performance Score Process
  • Common scoring form used in rating performance
  • Analyze country-level information on the five
    topics covered
  • Measure significant changes from year to year
  • Establish a score for each indicator
  • Indicators scored on 6 point scale (6 as
  • RSP Score equals un-weighted average of the
    average rating for each of the 12 indicators
    (three or four sub-indicators for each
  • Individual country ratings reviewed by the
    regional division to ensure consistency of
    results and process employed.
  • IFAD-wide review of scores based on statistical
    analysis undertaken to identify outliers,
    anomalies and promote uniformity across countries.

Rural Sector Clusters and Indicators

    and their organizations

    extension services

    for rural development
