The brave new world by Theodore H Moran( )

The purpose of this report is to present the ideas and experiences of some of the most distinguished practitioners from the investor, financial, and investment insurance communities in the world. To assist the reader, this volume's editor provides a brief overview to introduce each of the separate topics. Topics focus on the multiple pledge-of-shares problem; the preferred creditor status; breach of contract coverage in infrastructure projects, and OPIC modified expropriation coverage (using an Indonesian case study); securitizing political risk insurance; and cooperation, competition, and the "science of pricing" in the political risk insurance marketplace. The appendices also contain two articles: "Political Risk Investment Insurance: The Renaissance Revisited," and "Managing International Political Risk

Improving municipal management for cities to succeed : an IEG special study by World Bank( )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities now house half the world's population and produce 70 percent of its GDP. Managing them well helps development. Strengthening municipal management of planning, finance, and service provision has been at the core of World Bank support through municipal development projects (MDPs). This book reviews how, worldwide, nearly 3,000 municipalities have benefitted from 190 World Bank-supported MDPs over the past decade, three quarters of which achieved satisfactory outcomes. The finance dimension of MDPs--computerized accounting, revenue generation, and municipal credit--produced some of the best r

The World Bank's country policy and institutional assessment : an IEG evaluation by World Bank (Pakistan)( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Bank's Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) assess the conduciveness of a country's policy and institutional framework to poverty reduction, sustainable growth, and the effective use of development assistance. The CPIA enters the calculation of country performance ratings that, since 1980, have been used to allocate International Development Association (IDA) resources to eligible client countries. This evaluation was undertaken at the request of Board members to assess the appropriateness of the CPIA as a broad indicator of development effectiveness and as a determinant of the allocation of IDA funds. As indicated in the approach paper, this evaluation reviews the effects of the CPIA ratings on IDA allocations but does not review the IDA allocation formula itself. The evaluation finds that the CPIA content broadly reflects the determinants of economic growth and poverty reduction identified in the economics literature, but some criteria need to be revised (such as the trade criterion that places much greater emphasis on imports than exports) and streamlined, and one criterion (assessment of disadvantaged socioeconomic categories other than gender) added. The CPIA ratings also correlate well with ratings of similar indicators, and more so for International Bank for Reconstruction and Development than for IDA countries. In part, this could be caused by the CPIA exercise's practice over the past several years of taking into account a country's stage of development, which also means that the CPIA is no longer an index in the true sense of the word. It is difficult to establish an empirical link between the CPIA and economic growth outcomes, although CPIA ratings are found to be positively associated with aid effectiveness in the narrower sense-specifically, the performance of Bank loans. The report lays out four recommendations: disclose International Bank for Reconstruction and Development ratings; discontinue the "stage of development" adjustment to the ratings; review and revise the content and clustering of the criteria; and discontinue the current aggregation of the criteria into an overall index
The matrix system at work : an evaluation of the World Bank's organizational effectiveness by World Bank( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1997 Bank reforms that introduced the matrix management concept aimed to adapt the organization to changing circumstances and address concerns among external stakeholders about the role of aid in development. The reforms were motivated largely by widespread recognition that the Bank's development programs were excessively driven by a culture of lending, with insufficient attention to client needs and the quality of results, which are crucial to development effectiveness. A previous round of reforms in 1987 had strengthened the country focus, but quality remained a concern. Furthermore, access of developing countries to development finance from the private sector had increased significantly, leading to a decreasing share of official development aid, including Bank financing, in total flows to developing countries. By the mid-1990s, pressure for change was acute. The 1997 reforms tried to address these challenges through a new set of organizational arrangements, increased decentralization, and matrix management. The most frequent rationale for a matrix structure is to balance competing priorities, combine capabilities for market advantage, share resources for efficiency, and retain flexibility to redeploy resources in the face of changing priorities and a diversified client base. The matrix system - a dual matrix, Bank-wide between the six Regions and four networks, and in each Region between Country Management Units and Sector Management Units - was to be facilitated by dual accountability for technical quality and an internal labor market for staff renewal and mobility. It has been more than a decade since the 1997 reorganization, and concerns that the matrix system is not delivering on its promise persist. This evaluation assesses the extent to which the dual objectives of the matrix system - enhancing client responsiveness and establishing strong technical networks to deliver quality services - have been attained and have enhanced the Bank's development effectiveness. The evaluation focuses on implementation of the current matrix system rather than on the 1997 matrix design and follows an objectives-based approach to assess the relevance and effectiveness of the matrix reform until 2010. To the extent feasible, the evaluation also examines the efficiency of matrix arrangements.--Résumé de l'éditeur
Analyzing the effects of policy reforms on the poor : an evaluation of the effectiveness of World Bank support to poverty and social impact analyses by World Bank( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current global financial and economic crises are likely to put enormous pressure on governments to respond with immediate measures and to undertake far-reaching reforms in the medium term, requiring a substantial increase in donor support. To protect the poor and enhance benefits to them, key policy reforms will need to be underpinned by systematic analysis of their expected poverty and social impacts. The World Bank's experience to date with the Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) approach provides useful lessons for addressing these issues. Overall, implementation of the PSIA approach has had considerable limitations. There have been tensions between the various operational objectives assigned to PSIAs. The tensions concern inconsistencies between informing country and Bank policy decisions in a timely way and building country analytic capacity. PSIAs have had limited ownership by Bank staff and managers and have often not been effectively integrated into country assistance programs. Quality assurance, monitoring, and evaluation of the overall effectiveness of PSIAs have been weak. To improve PSIAs' effectiveness, this evaluation recommends that the Bank take measures to ensure that staff fully understands what the PSIA approach is and when to use it, clarify the operational objectives of each PSIA, and ensure that the approach and timeline adopted are aligned with those objectives. Quality assurance mechanisms should be strengthened to ensure that PSIAs are designed to achieve the intended effects
2010 world investment and political risk by Daniel Villar( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two years into the deepest global financial crisis in the post-war era, the world economy is still experiencing uneven economic recovery and financial weakness. Financial market conditions are signaling improved investor confidence and more appetite for cross-border investments. As part of its mandate to encourage investment to developing countries, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) seeks to foster more understanding of the role of political risk, and instruments to mitigate it. The objective for this report is to examine (i) overall investment trends and perceptions of political risk especially for what regards foreign direct investment (FDI) to emerging markets; (ii) investments and risks specifically in Conflict-Affected and Fragile States (iii) the role political risk insurance (PRI) is playing today and its likely role in the future

The World Bank legal review. the role of law and justice systems by Frank Fariello( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The newly adopted post-2015 development agenda is centered on 17 sustainable development goals to be reached by 2030. This volume of the World Bank Legal Review looks at how law and justice systems can support the financing and implementation of these goals, including the role of the rule of law and economic and social rights. The contributors, including legal scholars, development practitioners, and financial experts, analyze the goals, explore ways in which they can be achieved, and examine ways that recent relevant law and justice programs have worked. A wide array of topics are covered, from the legal aspects of collecting and monitoring vital data, to improving legal identity programs, to creating innovative health care regulation, to legal and judicial reform, to providing private sector-financing of public education projects to the provision of global public goods. Additionally, a special section on Europe looks at financial crisis management, enforcement of court decisions and the workings of the European Court of Justice. The opportunities and challenges of the 2030 agenda are many. This volume looks at both from multiple perspectives, demonstrating how sustainable development can go forward in a way in which everyone benefits
Old risks, new solutions, or is it the other way around? by Gero Verheyen( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Old Risks - New Solutions, Or Is It The Other Way Around is the latest book in a series based on the MIGA-Georgetown University Symposium on International Political Risk Management. The Symposium has traditionally brought together almost 200 senior practitioners from the political risk insurance (PRI) industry, including investors, insurers, brokers, lenders, academics and members of the legal community. This volume reflects the key issues which have faced investors and insurers alike including arbitration and a dynamically evolving marketplace. Contributors to this volume reflect on the evolution of the PRI industry during a period of dramatic changes in the marketplace. Not only has the crisis had a tremendous impact on the volume of investment projects, particularly into developing countries, but also on the perception of risk and claims management. The volume begins with a look at the global market place in the aftermath of the financial crisis from an insurer's perspective. It continues with an overview of claims experience and key issues investors should understand when relying on bilateral investment treaties. The volume then examines challenges facing investors and insurers alike when considering sovereign risk within the context of political risk. The volume concludes with an overview of the PRI industry and its evolution over time - how did insurers see the global marketplace evolving over time, what are they predicting now, and how much has it really changed? Old Risks - New Solutions provides valuable insights for practitioners and investors alike, particularly in today's turbulent and uncertain markets
2009 world investment and political risk by World Bank Group( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over one year into its deepest global financial crisis in the post-war era, the world economy is entering a phase of economic recovery and financial stabilization. Financial market conditions are signaling much improved investor confidence and a revival of risk appetite for emerging markets. Yet concerns over political risks are high. As part of its mandate to encourage investment to developing countries, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) seeks to foster more understanding of the role of political risk, and instruments to mitigate it. The objective for this report is to examine (i) overall trends in political risk perceptions, and how they relate to financial flows -- particularly foreign direct investment (FDI) -- to emerging markets, (ii) corporate views on foreign investment intentions and the political risk environment in emerging markets, in the context of the financial crisis (iii) whether the political risk insurance (PRI) industry is well positioned to deal with the fallout from the crisis, as well as longer-term shifts in demand for political risk guarantees. Given MIGA's mandate and the growing weight of emerging markets as a source of FDI, particular attention was paid to South-based investors and PRI providers in the general analysis."--Publisher's website
Poverty reduction support credits : an evaluation of World Bank support by World Bank( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of Poverty Reduction Support Credits (PRSCs), introduced in early 2001 under World Bank Interim guidelines, was to help countries implement comprehensive, country-owned development strategies to promote growth, improve social conditions, and reduce poverty. PRSCs were intended to ease conditionality and to make annual flows to recipient countries predictable and integrated with their budgets. To reduce fiduciary risks associated with budget support, PRSCs were intended to strengthen domestic budget processes. They were seen as providing a framework for donor harmonization and were meant to focus on achieving clearly defined results
