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+-+21989867353829ocn060788963file20050.47World BankInternational political risk management the brave new worldConference proceedingsInternational Political Risk Management, Volume 2: The Brave New World is the latest in a series based on the MIGA-Georgetown University Symposium on International Political Risk Management.

The two explosives were also submitted to routine tests to determine thermal and handling characteristics. Both explosives were accepted for machining and general handling. One-and two-inch-diameter cylinders were fired. Although a definite diameter effect was noted with H-6, no such effect was apparent with tritonal. This report discusses the apparent discrepancy and includes recommendations for further testing. Tritonal and H-6 proved to be less energetic than Composition B, with H-6 more enegetic than TNT and Tritonal less energetic than TNT11ocn228020623book1984Papp, A. GInterim Total Containment Test Fire Facility, Pantex Plant, Amarillo, TexasThis report documents the results of a test program which consisted of a series of explosive tests within a confinement chamber called the Interim Total Containment Test Fire Facility. The chamber was designed for maximum explosive charge of 29 lb of TNT. The purpose and objective of the testing were to determine the effectiveness of the chamber to contain the blast loads and hazardous fragments generated by the largest HE charge expected to be fired within the chamber11ocn012987230book1981West, Gerald TStatement of Gerald T.
