Only the countries, which have satisfied the eligibility criteria especially in good governance can benefit from their IDA allocation.

In the financial package, each eligible country contributes for one third (1/3) of its IDA allocation and the Bank contributes two-thirds (2/3) from the IDA regional desk. The beneficiary countries pay one fifteenth (1/15) of their funding to CORAF/WECARD to ensure the regional coordination.
