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 The World Bank( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This IEG evaluation, requested by the World Bank's Board of Executive Directors, represents the first independent evaluation of the PSIA experience. The evaluation finds that:. The PSIA approach has appropriately emphasized the importance of assessing the distributional impact of policy actions, understanding institutional and political constraints to development, and building domestic ownership for reforms. PSIAs have not always explicitly stated their operational objectives (i.e., informing country policies, informing Bank operations, and/or contributing to country capacity). PSIAs hav

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries 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

Poverty reduction support credits : an evaluation of World Bank support by The World Bank( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This evaluation examines the relevance and effectiveness of Poverty Reduction Support Credits (PRSCs), introduced by the Bank in early 2001 to support comprehensive growth, improve social conditions, and reduce poverty in IDA countries. PRSCs were intended to allow greater country-ownership, provide more predictable annual support, exhibit more flexible conditionality, and strengthen budget processes in a results-based framework. By September 2009, the Bank had approved 99 PRSCs totaling some $7.5 billion and representing 38% percent of IDA policy based lending. The evaluation finds that in terms of process, PRSCs were effective in easing conditionality, increasing country ownership and aid predictability, stimulating dialogue between central and sectoral ministries, and improving donor harmonization. In terms of content, PRSCs succeeded in emphasizing public sector management and pro-poor service delivery. Yet in terms of results, it is difficult to distinguish growth and poverty outcomes in countries with PRSCs from other better performing IDA countries. There is scope for further simplifying the language of conditionality and underpinning PRSCs with better pro-poor growth diagnostics. PRSCs can also strengthen their results frameworks and limit sector policy content in multi-sector DPLs to high-level or cross-cutting issues. Today, Bank policy has subsumed PRSCs under the broader mantle of Development Policy Lending and the rationale for a separate 'brand name' although differences linger from the past. Since PRSCs and other policy-based lending have gradually converged in design, remaining differences compared to other Development Policy Loans should be clearly spelled out, or the separate PRSC brand name should be phased out
Improving municipal management for cities to succeed : an IEG special study by World Bank( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 86 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 results, but weaker outcomes came from attempts to stimulate private finance of municipal services.City planning, used by municipalities worldwide, was not a strong priority for MDPs. But building municipal information systems, for example in Chile, were successful. Monitoring and evaluation rarely worked well, except when municipalities themselves were convinced of its usefulness, such as in Russia, Tunisia, and Colombia. Results in managing service provision were mixed. The poverty focus of MDPs was strikingly weak across the portfolio. Cost-benefit analysis rarely prioritized municipal investments. But MDPs helped municipalities strengthen their procurement function.MDPs helped municipalities manage services more effectively. Better results still can come from a stronger poverty focus, more attention to planning and prioritizating investments, and more effective operation and maintenance of such investments

2009 world investment and political risk( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 79 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

MIGA and foreign direct investment : evaluating developmental impacts by Gerald T West( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Section I of this report describes in broad terms Miga's development mandate as required by the Agency's Convention and operational Regulations, and details its progress to enhance its contribution to development. It characterizes Miga's growth over the last ten years in terms of: membership; cumulative foreign direct investment facilitated in developing member coutnries; total number of guarantees issued; and the cumulative amount of guarantees issued. This section also illustrates the increasing regional and sectoral diversification of Miga's portfolio, and presents aggregate statistics about its development effectiveness. Section II provides an overview of the evolution of Miga's evaluation program and describes its project evaluation methodology and process. Section III verifies quantitative aggregated information about projects' dorect economic effects by comparing anticipated development data with actual results retrieved by Miga staff or independent consultants during the evaluation exercise. Subsequently, the same section supplies evidence of the developmental impacts of Miga-supported projects following a multidimensional approach that distinguishes between different types of developmental effects. Section IV presents three in-depth case studies; a fertilizer plant in Bangladesh, a denim facility in Pakistan, and a residential mortgage program in Argentina. These case studies serve as a basis to test the evaluation framework and to identify further information needs. Finally, the Appendix discusses the special case of the developmental impacts of financial sector investments and rationale for the support Miga provides to this type of investment
