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( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 113 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
Improving effectiveness and outcomes for the poor in health, nutrition, and population : an evaluation of World Bank Group support since 1997 by World Bank( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 104 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 World Bank( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 93 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
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 by World Bank Group( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 83 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

Investment insurance and developmental impact : evaluating MIGA's experience by Gerald T West( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The document is an assessment of the impacts of a large sample of the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) assisted investments, reflecting to various degrees, the actual impacts in the twenty seven countries it operated. However, these differences should not mask the reality that, relative to the investment-specific anticipated impacts, these investments generally met, or exceeded the original anticipated impacts. For regardless of some difficulties, and failures, the broad positive impact of these projects is evident. The present analysis both encompasses, and extends the analysis of 1998, and, represents a comprehensive evaluation of the development impacts of foreign direct investments, ever undertaken by an investment insurer, offering a research that explores the nexus between private investment, and development across multiple dimensions, and time. A description of MIGA's development mandate is offered, as described in the Agency's Convention and Operational Regulations, and a brief overview of MIGA's growth since inception is provided, highlighting the increasing regional, and sectoral diversification of its portfolio. A comparison of anticipated, vs. actual benefits for some quantitative indicators is provided, as well as an analysis of impacts within a multidimensional framework. Two case studies are presented, and the lessons learned lay the foundation for future work

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 4 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
