Large dams : learning from the past, looking at the future : workshop proceedings, Gland, Switzerland, April 11-12, 1997( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1996 the World Bank Operations Evaluation Department completed an internal review of 50 large dams funded by the World Bank. IUCN-The World Conservation Union and the World Bank agreed to jointly host a workshop in April 1997 to discuss the findings of the review and their implications for a more in-depth study. The workshop broke new ground by bringing together representatives from governments, the private sector, international financial institutions and civil society organizations to address three issues: critical advances needed in knowledge and practice, methodologies and approaches required to achieve these advances, and proposals for a follow-up process involving all stakeholders

Natural gas : private sector participation and market development by World Bank( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With abundant underdeveloped reserves of natural gas, this resource has the potential to play a large role in meeting the world's growing energy demand." Natural gas competes with other resources for use in power generation. In addition, its other uses have increased dramatically. Since it offers substantial environmental advantages over other hydrocarbon fuels, governments and investors are considering natural gas. This volume examines a range of issues relating to gas sector reform and gas market development. It also examines the reform experience in an array of countries. The last section reviews some of the commercial issues faced in expanding the role of gas, such as, the challenges of developing and financing cross-border gas pipeline trade and the difficulties of attracting investors to projects involving countries with high credit and currency risks
Improving primary health care delivery in Nigeria : evidence from four states by World Bank Group( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study aims at understanding the performance of primary health care providers and the variables driving this performance using the World Development Report (WDR) 2004 accountability framework. The study is primarily based on quantitative surveys at the level of primary health care facilities, health care personnel, and households in their vicinity. These surveys were implemented in four states: Bauchi, Cross River, Kaduna, and Lagos. Despite large Government efforts, the delivery of quality primary health care services remains a challenge in the country. The condition of the infrastructure is poor; many facilities do not have the required equipment or the pharmaceutical products to offer quality care. In addition, household satisfaction with services is low and very few outreach services are provided. The three levels of government, Federal, State, and local governments have some responsibility in the provision of health services. The division of roles and responsibilities between levels, particularly between states and LGs, is complex and not always clear undermining the accountability relationships between citizens, policymakers, and providers. In addition, health personnel salaries are often delayed and are not linked to the provision of services. Clearly defining lines of responsibilities, performance based financing of local governments and providers, and the collection, analysis, and sharing of information are some options that can help to re-align incentives and improve accountability of policymakers and providers. Reinforcing client's power and increasing their demand of services can compensate for weaknesses in the "long route" of accountability for the delivery of primary health care. The Nigerian Government has long recognized the importance of community participation in the delivery of basic health care services and has thus tried to involve the communities in the development of PHC along the lines of the Bamako Initiative

Six appendices supply in-depth information on the Bank Group's environmental programs and compliance standards, the Group's field offices worldwide, industry and country-specific contacts at the IBRD, IFC, and MIGA, IBRD and IDA county lending policies, and a list of selected World Bank Group publications

Improving effectiveness and outcomes for the poor in health, nutrition, and population : an evaluation of World Bank Group support since 1997 by D.C.). Independent Evaluation Group World Bank (Washington( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study evaluates the effectiveness of the World Bank Group's support for health, nutrition, and population (HNP) in developing countries from 1997 to 2008 - totaling more than 17 billion - and distills lessons for greater impact in the future. It finds that the Bank Group now funds a smaller share of global support for HNP than a decade ago, but its support remains substantial and adds considerable value. About two-thirds of the Bank's HNP support has had satisfactory outcomes, often in difficult environments
