The IEO seeks to reach as broad an audience as possible in its outreach efforts. For budgetary reasons, for events in developed countries, the IEO has generally relied upon offers made by various partners to organize such events. In addition, a number of events in developing countries have been organized and financed by the IEO; some events discussing the PRSP evaluation were undertaken jointly with the World Bank’s OED.
