Reforming agriculture the World Bank goes to market by Jacob Meerman ( )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report evaluates the World Bank's experience with the fifty agricultural adjustment operations (agsecals) approved by the Board since 1979 and reflects the impact of Bank programming of a world wide shift in the development paradigm. The report looks at theory and impact, focusing on supply response, and finds that supply response is symmetrical, synergistic, and depends on the reform credibility. The report finds unfinished business in the areas of:food security, performance indicators, international input markets, domestic agricultural commodity and import markets, and the political economy of agricultural reforms. Nevertheless, best practice work in the Bank on a number of basic agricultural reforms (pricing reforms, reform of public enterprises and public expenditure programs) is satisfactory. The report gives several recommendations:a) the Bank should develop a comprehensive good practice statement; b) modification of the agsecal as a lending instrument is needed; and c) other kinds of lending should be encouraged including hybrid agsecals, policy-oriented agricultural sector investment operations and investment projects with front-loading of policy reforms related to the proposed investments

Books, buildings, and learning outcomes an impact evaluation of World Bank support to basic education in Ghana by Howard White ( )
8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines the impact of World Bank-supported educational reforms introduced in Ghana since 1986 and related investment projects in support of basic education. A nation-wide survey of households, schools, and teachers found that both the quantity and quality of schooling has improved over the last fifteen years. Enrolments in basic education have increased by over 10 percent compared to 15 years ago. And whereas 15 years ago nearly two-thirds of primary school graduates were illiterate, less than one in twenty are so today. These improvements in learning outcomes are clearly and strongly linked to better welfare as measured by higher income, better nutrition, and reduced mortality.; The gains in educational outputs can be directly linked to better school quality, manifested in improved infrastructure and greater availability of school supplies. Today it is the norm to have one textbook per child for math and English: rather than one per class as was common before the advent of reforms. Increased school quality can in turn be linked to the Bank's support which has financed the construction of 8,000 classroom blocks and provided 35 million textbooks over the last 15 years. Moreover Bank support helped sustain initially unpopular reforms, demonstrating the efficacy of working in partnership with a government committed to a well-defined sectoral strategy

World Bank Operations Evaluation Department the First 30 Years by Patrick Grasso ( )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Operations Evaluation Department (OED) of the World Bank celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of its founding on July 1, 2003. This volume details this history of OED as related by many of those who participated in making that history and is divided into four sections. The first section is taken from a series of presentations made by former Directors-General, Operations Evaluations, and senior OED managers. The second part provides perspectives on OED from two of its internal constituencies-the Board of Executive Directors and senior World Bank management. Part three considers OED's relationship with external constituencies and finally, section four offers a forward-looking appraisal of the challenges of development evaluation from three of its leading members.--Publisher's description
Promoting environmental sustainability in development an evaluation of the World Bank's performance by Andrés Liebenthal ( )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
OED's evaluation has been timed to inform the preparation of the new Environment Strategy Paper. The evaluation is based on the synthesis of self-evaluation assessments, case studies of selected countries, background reviews of selected areas, surveys and interviews of Bank staff, and consultations with stakeholders in four regions. An Advisory Panel reviewed drafts and served as a sounding board for the recommendations. A concluding Workshop on the Bank's Environment Strategy and OED's Environment Review provided an opportunity for participants to comment on the Review findings and on the draft Environment Strategy, and to discuss next steps in implementation. In addition to OED's Review, we are pleased to share with you the report of OED's Advisory Panel, and the Facilitator's Summary of the concluding workshop
1999 annual review of development effectiveness by Nagy Hanna ( )
3 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Comprehensive Development Framework (CDF), launched by the President of the World Bank in January 1999, is a response to the alarming trends of increased world poverty and dimmed growth prospects, inequality and instability, stagnant aid flows, and public dissatisfaction with the efficacy of development assistance. The CDF focuses on a holistic, broad-based approach to development assistance; domestic ownership; partnerships among government, local communities, the private sector, civil society, and development agencies; and the results achieved from development. Being too early to evaluate this initiative, the 1999 Annual Review of Development Effectiveness instead examines the lessons of development experience through the lens of these CDF principles. As in past years, the Review tracks the Bank's operational performance based on the findings of recent OED evaluations. The Review draws on extensive evaluation evidence, literature reviews and research findings, country assistance evaluations, background papers, and workshops to identify the tensions and dilemmas likely to be involved in CDF implementation. It identifies promising approaches to meeting the challenges implicit in CDF implementation. Finally, it draws broad implications for the Bank's future development effectiveness
Development Challenges in the 1990s Leading Policymakers Speak from Experience by N. Roberto Zagha ( )

"Development Challenges in the 1990s: Leading Policymakers Speak from Experience brings together the insights and experiences of some of the world's leading policymakers and global thought leaders, individuals who have had substantial influence on the policy reforms and development strategies in their native countries. Sharing their unique perspectives, these "practitioners of development" explain the reasons for the uneven outcomes of the 1990s and, with the benefit of hindsight, draw relevant lessons for the future."--Jacket
Assessing development effectiveness evaluation in the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation by World Bank ( )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Effective management of development requires reliable feedback about the impact of ongoing and completed operations. This is the major goal of evaluation. Learning from development experiences calls for a well focused and well structured system of operations evaluation. The World Bank's operations evaluation organization has been in existence for more than two decades. It provides comprehensive information for management decisions at all levels and supports a continuing process of performance improvement. Closely linked to the project cycle and to policy reform, evaluation in the Bank incorporates contributions from borrowers, who are the owners of the operations that the Bank finances. Operations evaluation provides insights and recommendation of value to development practitioner both within and outside the Bank

Capacity Building in Africa an OED Evaluation of World Bank Support by World Bank ( )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
African countries need to improve the performance of their public sectors if they are going to achieve their goals of growth, poverty reduction, and the provision of better services for their citizens. Between 1995 and 2004, the Bank provided some $9 billion in lending and close to $900 million in grants and administrative budget to support public sector capacity building in Africa. This evaluation assesses Bank support for public sector capacity building in Africa over these past 10 years. It is based on six country studies, assessments of country strategies and operations across the Region, and review of the work of the World Bank Institute, the Institutional Development Fund, and the Bank-supported African Capacity Building Foundation
