Director, Development Impact Department, IFC
Nigel Twose is currently Director of IFC’s newly created Development Impact Department where he oversees the creation of a unified results-measurement system. This combines IFC’s New Development Goals as targets designed to measure clients increased outreach in priority sectors as a result of IFCs support. The IDGs sit alongside the existing DOTS and Advisory Services measurement system, and a strengthened valuation function, used to generate information that informs strategy and project decision making. Prior to the current assignment, Mr. Twose was Director of the IDA/IFC Secretariat - a joint IBRD and IFC appointment, where he oversaw a steady increase in collaboration between the Bank and IFC in IDA countries. This involved improvement in internal systems, in joint strategy formulation and support to operational collaboration. Mr. Twose joined the World Bank in 1997 as an Adviser in the Finance and Private Sector Development Vice Presidency. He has since held managerial positions in the Private Sector Development Group, including Senior Manager in charge of investment climate reform in the Africa Region, based in Johannesburg. This was a joint position of the Foreign Investment Advisory Service (FIAS) and PEP Africa, with a consolidated Bank Group team delivering advisory services to client governments across the continent. Prior to joining the World Bank, Mr. Twose had a 21 year career with non-governmental organizations, including postings in West Africa and South Asia.
