I guess the answer is based on the parallelism between implementing and demanding, thus it should be, "B".

Yeah it was really confusing for me at first, because I wanted to compare it with improve. Nice

Good one Mat. Got me thinking for a while; kept looking for the parallel element which made sense.

Parallelism works the best here.

For more than five decades, the IMF has been implementing its structural adjustment policies in developing countries as a way toward improved economic outcomes and demanding financial transparency from participating governments.

Hence IMHO (B)

Also,

among
(i) improved economic outcomes, (ii) improving economic outcomes and (iii) economically improved outcomes:

In (i) ' economic outcomes' is the main noun (which are improved) -> correct
(ii) improving is the main noun (or gerund) (economic outcomes is the object) -> incorrect
(iii) 'economically' changes meaning altogether -> incorrect
