A Free Development Marketplace Grantee Toolkit

The Development Marketplace (DM) is a competitive grant program that identifies and supports field testing of innovative, early stage ideas with potential for high development impact. Administered by the World Bank, it attracts ideas from a range of innovators, including civil society groups, social entrepreneurs, academia and private sector.


Development Marketplace Advances in M&E Practice
The Development Marketplace is continually updating its systems to monitor and evaluate its project portfolio. Beginning with the 2005 competition, each global competition now focuses on a specific theme or sector. The homogeneity of the portfolio enhances the ability of the World Bank to assess the performance of the portfolio and to draw lessons learned specific for promoting innovation in a particular development sector. Another improvement since 2005 has been the increased attention paid by the World Bank to oversee project implementation and ensure
good fiduciary management. Roles and responsibilities have also been clearly defined for WB sector specialist and DM staff who monitor the portfolio. Perhaps most important, winners from 2007 and beyond identify 1-3 key outcome indicators and associated targets that are used to assess the degree to which the project achieved its objective(s).
