The Bank's loss of presence and relevance in the region had a negative impact on its capacity to influence the economic and social development of the region. The reforms associated with the realignment were aimed at sharpening the Bank's country and sector focuses and improving its organizational efficiency and effectiveness. According to the realignment documents, the achievement of those intermediate objectives translates into the attainment of the targets identified. In turn, this greater country and sector focus and organizational efficiency and effectiveness was expected to lead to a greater presence and relevance of the Bank in the region.
